Marcella AlsanTuskegee

The "Tuskegee Study of Untreated Syphilis in the Negro Male" (TSUS), conducted between 1932 and 1972, passively monitored 400 adult black males with active, late stage syphilis. The study's methods have become synonymous with exploitation and mistreatment of black males by the medical community. We estimate the extent to which the revelation of TSUS contributed to historical racial disparities in medical mistrust and in subsequent health-seeking behavior and health outcomes. Our measures of exposure to the news of Tuskegee are correlated with economically significant increases in measures of medical mistrust and mortality and with decreases in outpatient physician interactions. Those with prior experience to the medical community, including black veterans and women, appear to have been less affected by the disclosure. Our findings relate to a broader literature on how beliefs are formed and the importance of trust for economic exchanges involving asymmetric information.
