Unpacking Neglected Social Factors to Ensure Impact
Bioethics With Bigger Impact
February 7, 2023 2 PM EST
It is imperative to understand the social and ethical roots of our present conversations about health inequalities, in order to partner intelligently with the public, researchers, and policymakers for real impact. Since its inception, the field of bioethics has worked in core concepts of justice and equity, and considerations of social and political context. But these presenters push for a reorientation toward transformative justice, and a broader understanding of social determinants of health. Join for this boundary pushing conversation.
In a virtual event, a companion to a special issue in Perspectives in Biology and Medicine, Gina Campelia of the University of Washington School of Medicine, Holly Vo of Seattle Children’s Hospital, and Gail Henderson of the University of North Carolina School of Medicine, with moderator Jennifer James of the University of California, San Francisco, moves the field forward.
