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‚Äźneeded medicine. Decades after the fact, Evers is called before a Senate
committee to testify as to what really happened during the infamous “Tuskegee Study.”

Film screening and panel discussion of 'Miss Evers' Boys' in the Health Sciences Library on February 6th at 5:30 - 8:30 pm.
