STEALTH ASSASSINS:

Healthcare Professional

Serial Killers


Speaker: Dr. Eindra Khin Khin

Dr. Virginia Soares de Souza of Brazil, charged with seven counts of murder in 2013 and implicated in over three hundred patient deaths, is the latest in a long line of healthcare professional serial killers who operate under a cloak of invisibility, afforded to them by their sacred profession. The violation of trust and training that occurs when the clinical skills designed to provide comfort, care, and safety are used to harm patients makes serial murder by healthcare professionals a particularly heinous crime.
 
Dr. Eindra Khin Khin will present a critical analysis of the evidence-based literature to underscore the fact that these healthcare professional serial killers have a far more devastating impact than the general serial killers, due to the greater number of victims made possible by the longer durations of evasion. She'll also examine the methods and victim profiles in these cases, explore the motives underlying these crimes, and review the factors responsible for the long periods of elusion. She'll conclude with red flags to be monitored and practical, systemic safeguards to be implemented in an effort to better detect and deter this particularly dangerous brand of serial killers.
 
Dr. Khin is an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at The George Washington University School of Medicine & Health Sciences. She received her medical degree from University of Virginia School of Medicine and completed her internship and residency in general psychiatry at George Washington University Medical Center, where she served as Chief Resident. Following residency, she completed a fellowship in forensic psychiatry at Georgetown University Hospital. Dr. Khin Khin is board certified in general and forensic psychiatry. She is currently working on a Master of Public Health degree in Global Health at George Washington University School of Health and Health Sciences.
 
Dr. Khin Khin currently serves as the Director of Forensic Psychiatry Services and the Associate Director of Psychiatry Residency Training Program at the George Washington University Medical Center in Washington, DC. She has held many clinical and didactic teaching responsibilities for both medical students and residents in general and forensic psychiatry, as well as global mental health and cross-cultural psychiatry.

PRISON TO STAGE

AT THE JOHN F. KENNEDY CENTER
FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS
 
Presented as part of the Kennedy Center's
Page to Stage Festival
 
For Performance Labor Day Weekend 2014
Director: Betty May
Producer: Dennis Sobin
 
Sponsored by the Prisons Foundation
 
The Prisons Foundation is a nonprofit organization founded by ex-prisoners. It reaches out to imprisoned artists whose art we exhibit and sell at our numerous affiliated art galleries, to imprisoned playwrights whose work we present at the Kennedy Center, and to imprisoned authors whose books we publish.   prisonsfoundation.org
 
Plays selected from material submitted by prison inmates across the country.
 

 **We need to stress that this contains adult content, possible violence, potentially disturbing images and language. It is not recommended for children or those who may be sensitive to the above.**

 
The tickets/seating will be on a first come/ first served basis on the night of the performance. We cannot reserve seats, but since it is an invitation event, it is expected that everyone will hopefully be accommodated. Friends are welcome, too. Afterwards there will be an opportunity to meet the director/dramaturge and cast. 
 

The Chesapeake Chapter of Sisters in Crime, like its national parent organization, was created to promote the professional development and advancement of women crime fiction writers to achieve equality in the industry.

Membership is open to anyone with a love of mysteries - men and women, readers and writers - who would like to help promote the advancement of women mystery writers. Chapter members typically come from D.C., Maryland and Virginia.
