This documentary, set in a psychiatric hospital in Egypt, opens with a policeman and his father being interviewed by a psychiatrist as the policeman is being admitted. The doctor asks the father, "Is he a policeman?" The father replies, "He used to be," and breaks down in tears over what his son once was and what he has become. All stories are told directly by patients and their families, with no added narration or judgment passed on the storytellers. In this film, the words speak for themselves.

Registration is not required. Each program in the series includes a featured film, a post-film discussion, and light refreshments. For additional information contact the Center for Global Health, cgh@pitt.edu. Sponsored by the Global Health Student Association and the Center for Global Health.

State of the Science: Collection, Protection, and Sharing of Genetic Materials and Results

Co-sponsored by the Institutional Review Board, the Center for Bioethics and Health Law, and the School of Nursing

Dramatic advances in genetic research have occurred over the past decade, but many commentators have argued that our privacy protections, regulatory and ethical oversight, and even the consent process may not be adequate to fully support the emerging field of personalized medicine. To address these issues, we have assembled a group of experts to speak on four broad topics:

"Protecting the Confidentiality of Research Subjects’ Genetic Data: An Impossible Task?"

Bradley Malin, PhD

Director of the Health Information Privacy Laboratory

Vanderbilt University

"Do Researchers Have a Duty to Return Genetic Results? Ethical and Practical Perspectives"

Pilar N. Ossorio, PhD, JD

"The Final Inch"

Polio is within “the final inch” of being eradicated. Nearly 50 years after a polio vaccine was developed by Dr. Jonas Salk and colleagues at the University of Pittsburgh, polio today has become a disease of the world’s poor. This documentary explores how the final days of any endeavor are always the most challenging. The film follows health workers on the front lines of eradicating the disease in India, Pakistan, and Afghanistan, while recounting the polio epidemics of 1940s and 1950s America. Although polio is close to eradication, resurgence remains a real threat due to government mistrust, lack of awareness, and the need to vaccinate children.
