Bioethics in Film: Aftershock Screening
The Division of Ethics hosts a screening of the award-winning documentary, Aftershock, which details the long-lasting effects of the Black maternal health crisis in the United States.

Through the eyes of their surviving families, the film presents the legacies of expectant mothers, Shamony Gibson and Amber Rose Issac, who tragically died due to lack of adequate medical care. Promoting awareness and prompting change, the film follows the moving fight for health justice and asks medical professionals: What must you do to address preventable pregnancy-related death, and what is your relationship to informed care, medical autonomy, and institutional accountability?

Content Warning: The film depicts true narratives of racism in medical health care. It includes discussions that may be triggering, including but not limited to: racial bias, discrimination, loss, and medical negligence. If you have experienced traumatic racial bias or discrimination in healthcare, please consider carefully whether watching this film is right for you at this time. If you do choose to watch, we encourage you to engage in self-care practices and reach out for support if needed. The Racial Equity Support Line is a service provided by Lines for Life that is led and staffed by people with lived experience of racism: 503-575-3764.

While the series provides a platform for the critical exchange of ideas, organizers of the session ask all participants to help create an atmosphere of mutual respect and sensitivity.
