Digging in the Archives: Why It Matters that the U.S. Government Apologized for Medical Research in Guatemala

This program is postponed

Susan Reverby, Ph.D., Professor of Women’s and Gender Studies, Wellesley

In October, President Obama apologized to the Guatemalan government for syphilis inoculation studies done by the U.S. Public Health Service from 1946 to 1948. This month, Guatemalans who were victims of the experiments filed suit against the United States seeking compensation. Reverby uncovered the unpublished studies while doing research for her book on the infamous Tuskegee Syphilis study. She will discuss her findings.
