The Department of Medical Ethics and Health Policy of the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine will host its second annual Bioethics Film Festival, "Almost Human?" April 4–6, 2017.
The screening of Avatar will be preceded by a catered reception and a conversation with Penn bioethics professor Jonathan Moreno and digital media executive Scott Ross.
