Session 4031.0 presents fresh considerations in vital areas of ethical concern within public health: Knowing, Suffering, and Trust. Presenters including current students in public health will share their research, regarding how we deploy epistemic pluralism of clinical, scientific and other knowledge in public health practice (KNOWING); regarding a key concern of public health - relieving SUFFERING by discussing new historical research about the work of Jewish health care providers in ghettos and camps; and regarding the meaning and purposes of public TRUST in managing public health.
Session Objectives: Discuss several concepts that are among the foundations of public health ethics and that are integrally involved with public health practice, within the context of recent analytical, historical, and other research.
