Nov 1 – Operation White Coat


As part of the 125th¬†festivities, The Grad School will be hosting a viewing of famed documentary, Operation White Coat, in Hodson Auditorium from 6-8 PM, which will be followed by a panel discussion composed of several individuals in the movie.¬† Operation Whitecoat was a medical research program carried out by the United States Army at Fort Detrick, Maryland between 1954 and 1973. The program pursued medical research using volunteer enlisted personnel who were eventually nicknamed “Whitecoats.” These volunteers, all conscientious objectors, were informed that the purpose of the research was to defend troops and civilians against biological weapons.¬† This unique event will appeal to students interested in biodefense and ethics, alike.
