We speak to Susan Reverby, the medical historian who discovered the Guatemala study. Medical historian Susan Reverby, author of Examining Tuskegee: The Infamous Syphilis Study and its Legacy, discusses the history of medical experimentation at home and abroad. We also play excerpts of the documentary Deadly Deception: The Tuskegee Study"--DemocracyNow website, Nov. 20, 2012
