Recognition, Remembrance, and Reflection: The Syphilis Study at Tuskegee and Macon County, Alabama

November 30 @ 1:00 pm 3:30 pm

This event will acknowledge the 50th anniversary of the end of the United States Public Health Service Study of Untreated Syphilis in the Negro Male at Tuskegee and Macon County, Alabama, 1932 -1972. The intention is to create a space for authentic, accurate storytelling and discussion regarding current and future opportunities for public health leaders at CDC and beyond to move from trust to trustworthiness.

The program will examine what happened, how and why it happened, lessons learned, the palpable effects still felt today, and CDC’s ongoing role in addressing health equity.

Participants will include experts in the fields of public health, ethics, history, and journalism. In addition to our speakers, we will feature moderated panel discussions. The program will be a hybrid event, available both virtually and in-person.
