About this event

The Mississippi State Office of Research Compliance and Security will host a seminar from noon to 2:30 p.m. on Nov. 30 providing participants with both IRB refresher training and two hours of RCR live training credits.

This event will acknowledge the 50th anniversary of the end of the U.S. Public Health Service Study of Untreated Syphilis in the Negro Male at Tuskegee and Macon County, Alabama, from 1932-1972. The intention is to create a space for authentic, accurate storytelling and discussion regarding current and future opportunities for public health leaders at CDC and beyond to move from trust to trustworthiness.

The program will examine what happened, how and why it happened, lessons learned, the palpable effects still felt today and CDC's ongoing role in addressing health equity.

The event will be held at 301 Research Blvd. in the Thad Cochran Research Park. Lunch will be provided, and parking is available without a permit.
