Join us for the Arizona premier of "Mixed Match!"

“Mixed Match” is an important human story told by mixed race people who, after being diagnosed with blood cancers, have to begin seemingly impossible searches to find bone marrow and cord blood donors because of their complex genetics. The multiracial community in the U.S. and Canada is one of the fastest growing demographics. This film confirms that being mixed race is no longer just about identity and that it can in fact be a matter of life and death.

The screening will be followed by a discussion that will explore disparities and the role that race plays in medicine.
