“Susan M. Reverby’s research on an immoral government medical study in Guatemala between 1946-48 where men and women were given syphilis led to a U.S. government response from the Secretaries of the Departments of State and Health and Human Services and an apology from President Obama to President Colom of Guatemala. The Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues, at President Obama’s request, is exploring the historical context of the research in Guatemala and current human subject protections. The article was published in the Journal of Policy History in January 2011. ”
