Homelessness and the Lived Experience of Our Unhoused Community Members

The Spring 2024 Ethics on the Big Screen event takes a deep dive into the topic of living with housing insecurity and experiencing homelessness. This session’s program will feature the documentary “Out of Frame”, and will highlight panelist perspectives from healthcare professionals and the personal experiences of housing insecurity and homelessness.  Special focus will be given to how stigma, social expectations, and organizational structures impact the lived experiences represented  through this event.  Using the framework of healthcare ethics, we will explore ways to expand our moral imagination and enhance our interactions from a place of empathy and compassionate insight.
