First Do No Harm – an Exhibit on Medical Ethics

First Do No Harm?, a new exhibit in the Briscoe Library 3rd floor exhibit cases, focuses on medical ethics.  This exhibit describes medical experiments in the United States as well as Germany that actually harmed participants in the name of science.  People were deliberately exposed to plutonium though ingestion of food, total body irradiation, shots, and atomic explosions.  Nazi’s experimented during WW II on concentration camp inmates.  Syphilis studies were conducted on black men in Alabama where treatment was withheld deliberately.  In all cases, the experimenters seemed to justify the harm to their subjects by the knowledge they hoped to gain.

The exhibit will be available March 1 – March 31, 2014.  Contact Anne Comeaux, comeaux@uthscsa.edu, or Mellisa DeThorne, dethorne@uthscsa.edu, for more information.
