Bioethics Screen Reflections Reviews ‘Grace’

STATES OF GRACE: Disability and Chronic Pain as a Bioethical Issue

by September Williams

STATES OF GRACE is a “must watch” film for health care providers. It deals with the health of caregivers, professionals and families, as well as that of persons who have become disabled. In STATES OF GRACE, Dr. Grace Dammann, is a revered physician who signed more than one thousand death certificates during the height of the HIV/AIDS epidemic. In 2008, just before memorial day, while commuting from work, another driver crashed head-on into her car as she crossed the Golden Gate Bridge.
