Greater Salt Lake City Chapter: Movie Night- Miss Evers' Boys

Event Description:
Miss Evers' Boys is based on the true story of the U.S. Government's 1932 Tuskegee Syphilis Experiment, in which a group of black test subjects were allowed to die, despite a cure having been developed. When nurse Eunice Evers (Alfre Woodard) is chosen to facilitate a program intended to curb syphilis rates among African Americans in rural Alabama, she is gratified to be able to serve her community. Over time, however, the study becomes twisted into a shocking human experiment in which patients are systematically denied much-needed medicine. Decades after the fact, Evers is called before a Senate committee to testify as to what really happened during the infamous "Tuskegee Study."
Event Agenda:
This program will start with the film screening, followed by a panel discussion and Q&A led by our panelists. 
Learning Objectives:
  1. Gain insight into the historical context and ethical implications of the Tuskegee Syphilis Study.
  2. Explore the complexities of informed consent, patient autonomy, and researcher responsibilities as depicted in the film, and relate these themes to contemporary clinical research practices.
  3. Foster dialogue and reflection among attendees to promote understanding, empathy, and accountability regarding past injustices and their implications for current and future clinical research endeavors.
