The Inoculation Studies in Guatemala: a webinar with Susan Reverby, PhD

By Susan M. Reverby


The Guatemala syphilis study, unearthed by medical historian, Susan M. Reverby, is another shocking and sadly familiar example of the abuse of human subjects in research. Ms. Reverby will present her findings in a webinar titled The Guatemalan Inoculation Study: Susan M. Reverby on Research Ethics and Lessons for HRPPs, which will address the horrific story of US public health researchers intentionally infecting hundreds of people in Guatemala, including mental patients, with gonorrhea and syphilis without their knowledge. A professor at Wellesley College who has published two books about the US Public Health Service Syphilis study that took place in Tuskegee, AL, Ms. Reverby will share her findings and insights on what today’s research professionals may learn from this astounding example of immoral research practices that occurred more than 60 years ago
