NPHW: Aftershock Documentary Screening

The Drexel MCH Student Organization, Peer Health Educators, and Dornsife SGO are co-hosting a screening of the film Aftershock which will be followed by a discussion of the film and the broader topics of black maternal health and maternal mortality in the U.S.

The screening will be followed by a discussion led by Dr. Aasta Mehta, adjunct faculty in CHP and Medical Officer of Women’s Health at the Division of Maternal and Child Health, PDPH. A link will be sent via email prior to the event to all who register for online attendance. This event is open to Drexel students, faculty, and staff only.

Film description: A disproportionate number of Black women are failed every year by the U.S. maternal health system. Shamony Gibson and Amber Rose Isaac lost their lives to preventable childbirth complications. Now, their partners and families sound a rallying cry around this crisis and galvanize activists, birth-workers and physicians.
