Event Description: 

Mark your calendars for a new discussion series that will examine research ethics issues raised in popular films and documentaries! The first session will focus on the 2018 documentary, "Three Identical Strangers." Triplets who had been adopted in infancy by three different families in infancy accidentally reconnect as young adults and ultimately discover nefarious reasons for their initial separation.

Come prepared to experience and investigate a riveting narrative of a NYC-based family who were unknowing subjects of an intense research study with wide-ranging implications.
