AbstractThe article presents the author's views regarding the betterment of human rights. She reflects on her grandfather who was a subject of the U.S. Health Syphilis Study as Tuskegee. She mentions that her need to explore past and current socioeconomic trends and their impact on human rights and the sense of compassion for impoverished communities is largely influenced by her grandfather's stories. She believes that public health research is influential in working towards the elimination of inequities in racial and ethnic health.
