Susan Reverby on human STD studies in Guatemala

Dear WHOMers,

Our colleague, Susan Reverby, is very prominently in the news today with revelations about the Guatemala STD studies.  See, for example, this item in USA Today: http://www.usatoday.com/news/nation/2010-10-04-STD04_ST_N.htm

Congratulations and kudos to Susan for bringing this shocking 1940s study to light and prompting a Presidential apology to the citizens of Guatemala.
