Healthcare Inequities Go Viral

Virtual Event

Healthcare Inequities Go Viral: Race, Medical Ethics, and History Through the Lens of a Pandemic

The COVID-19 Pandemic has made visible systemic inequities in our nation’s healthcare and medical research practices: from issues of cost and accessibility to environmental racism and the erosion of informed consent. Drawing upon recent publications and research for her forthcoming book Carte Blanche, Honors College Cherng Distinguished Scholar Harriet Washington presents an urgent call for just medical treatment and equitable outcomes. Harriet Washington is a medical ethicist and author of the award-winning book Medical Apartheid and A Terrible Thing to Waste.
