Why/Why not? ~100 words3. What was the researchers’ mindset and how did their approach differ from what we expect of researchers working in medical science today? What procedures are in place now to protect human subjects? Your answer should be ~100 words4. Now pick one of the people’s names below to read more about one of the individuals involved in either the Tuskegee, Guatemala or Willowbrook studies (pick ONE only).
