Caitlin will discuss her screenplay Wonder Drug, as well as her efforts, advocacy, and personal history with the DES drug disaster. (Caitlin’s script explores the synthetic hormone DES, a drug administered to pregnant women that was later found to be carcinogenic.) The program coincides with the 40th anniversary of the discovery of the DES cancer link at Boston’s Massachusetts General Hospital.
