To commemorate World AIDS Day on Dec. 1, the GW School of Nursing and the Association of Nurses in AIDS Care (ANAC) partnered to screen the documentary film 5B. Focused on a nurse-run ward at San Francisco General Hospital this film follows the healthcare workers who cared for HIV AIDS patients at the height of the epidemic in the mid-1980s. The screening was followed by a panel discussion moderated by Nurse Historian Ella Curry. The panel consisted of nurses Allison Moed Paolercio and Cliff Morrison, who stood up and managed Ward 5B at San Francisco General Hospital. Joining them was one of the film’s directors, Brendan Gaul, and Dr. David Keepnews, professor of nursing at the GW School of Nursing and director of the D.N.P. program in Health Policy.
