In spring 2013, CLAS, Tuskegee University, and Meharry Medical College hosted a panel in Nashville on bioethics and health disparities to discuss the links between the syphilis studies in the U.S. and Guatemala. Dr. Reuben Warren (Tuskegee National Center for Bioethics in Research and Health Care) spoke about the lapse in bioethics in the context of the Alabama syphilis experiments, and Dr. Elizabeth Heitman (Vanderbilt School of Medicine) discussed the recently revealed syphilis studies in Guatemala and the subjects of those studies. The panel was moderated by Professor Amy Non (Vanderbilt Department of Anthropology and Medicine, Health, and Society) and was attended by Meharry and Vanderbilt students and faculty.
