Bioethics & Humanities Autumn Courses of Interest

We still have space in two new bioethics courses that might be of interest to some of your students. These courses will provide critical knowledge to students who are pursuing the study of ethics, law, or research in health-related fields or who plan to work in medical, public health, or biotechnology-related settings.

Please see below for more details and forward on to interested students.

456 Social Justice and Health (5) I&S (SLN 20648) Examines the moral bases for the view that social inequalities in health are unjust. Using contemporary literature from moral philosophy and bioethics, case studies, film, and narrative, this course engages students in fundamental questions of social justice in public health and also explores moral constraints on the pursuit of health equity.
