Join Rutgers Global and its university partners at a screening of the documentary, 5B, to commemorate this year's World AIDS Day and Day without Art. 5B is the inspirational story of everyday heroes who took extraordinary action to comfort, protect, and care for the patients of the first HIV/AIDS ward unit in the United States at San Francisco General Hospital. 5B is stirringly told through first-person testimony of the nurses and caregivers who built Ward 5B in 1983, their patients, loved ones, and staff who volunteered to create care practices based in humanity and holistic well-being during a time of great uncertainty. The result is an uplifting yet candid and bittersweet monument to a pivotal moment in American history and a celebration of quiet heroes’ worthy of renewed recognition.
