Overview

MassBio will be holding a private screening of In Their Shoes, Unheard Stories of Reentry and Recovery, a moving documentary which is set in Boston and explores the connection between mental health, addiction, and incarceration. The film will be followed by a panel featuring Dr Bertha Madras of Harvard Medical School and Former US Representative Patrick Kennedy, both members of President Trump’s Commission on the Opioid Crisis.

The documentary recounts the journey of four men from addiction to prison and the complexity of their lives on the outside and is interspersed with interviews and commentary by Mayor Marty Walsh, Congressman Joe Kennedy III, Sheriff Michael Bellotti, Professor Randall Horton, and more.

The screening will be held at the MassBio office, 300 Technology Square, Cambridge on December 2nd. Registration and networking with refreshments and hors d’oeuvres will start at 6:00 pm and the documentary will begin at 6:30 pm.
