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 Commemoration of the Presidential Apology is held each year on the campus of Tuskegee University. The theme for the 19th Annual Commemoration events scheduled for April 11-16, 2016 is: Healing the Family through Social Justice. In 2012, the event was expanded to include a Public Health Ethics Intensive Course 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 foundations and principles of public health ethics by critically engaging practical decision-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.
