The National Center for Bioethics in Research and Health Care

The Tuskegee University National Center for Bioethics in Research & Health Care (the National Bioethics Center) was established on May 16, 1997, as part of the Presidential Apology given by President William J. Clinton for the United States Public Health Service Syphilis Study at Tuskegee. The Syphilis Study is one of the most egregious human subject violations in history. Since the official opening of the National Bioethics Center in May of 1999, a Com-memoration of the Presidential Apology is held each year on the campus of Tuskegee University. The 22th Annual Commemoration and 6th Annual Public Health Ethics Intensive will be held April 8-12, 2019.

In 2012, the event was expanded to include a Public Health Ethics Intensivecourse designed to broaden participants’ understanding of the ethical, social and political aspects of public health policy and practice. In addition, the Public Health Ethics Intensive Course helps build on the theoretical founda-tions and principles of public health ethics by critically engaging practical deci-sion-making and public health issues enabling participants to articulate how determinative factors such as race/ethnicity, sex and class play significant roles in public health ethics and social justice.

The two-and-a-half-day Public Health Ethics Intensive Course is designedfor a trans-disciplinary group of scholars, researchers, policy officials, community advocates and students. Health Care Professionals, Social Workers and other professionals have the opportunity to earn up to 22.5 continuing education credits after the completion of the entire two-and-a-half-day course.

Event Details: Tuition fees ($500) for the Public Health Ethics Intensive Course include two books and all course materials, lecture and small group attendances, breakfast and Commemoration luncheon, opening night reception and tours. The cost of dinners and lodging are not includ-ed. Registration fees ($50) for Commemoration include sessions and luncheon only held on April 12, 2019.
