The field of medicine has benefited tremendously from human research and experimentation. Yet, these advances have come at a cost. There have been many incidences in which individuals used in research studies were treated unfairly and harmed. One historically relevant incident was called the Tuskegee Syphilis Study. This federally funded study was initiated in 1932 in Macon County, Alabama by the US Public Health Service to address the epidemic of syphilis.
