Lecture on “Healing the Loathsome: J. Marion Sims’ Unreconciled Legacy of Racial Exploitation in Medicine.”

Friday, Jul 19, 2013 12:00p to 12:30p

J. Marion Sims established his reputation as the “father” of modern gynecology through research performed on enslaved African-American women. Was Sims unfairly exploiting this vulnerable population for professional gain? Or were his efforts part of an earnest attempt to relieve human suffering? In this talk, Adam Biggs will discuss the complex ethical issues surrounding Sims’ methods and consider their implications for modern medical research and his historical legacy.
