Controversy & Conversation Film Screening: "Code Black"
Thu, May 4, 2017 | APL Terrazas Branch, 1105 East Cesar Street, Austin, TX, 78702
6:30 PM - 8:45 PM
Code Black in a hospital describes an event where the number of people in need of medical attention exceeds the hospital’s resources. This 2013 documentary follows the story of a dedicated team of charismatic, young doctors-in-training as they wrestle openly with both their ideals and with the realities of saving lives in a complex and overburdened system.
Dr. Ted Held, Director of Reproductive Health at People’s Community Clinic, an FQHC based in Austin, and Faculty at the Dell Medical School, will be present to host a community discussion following the screening.
Join us for a reception at 6:30pm. The screening will begin at 7pm, to be followed by a brief conversation.
