Ethical dilemmas, intersectionality and issues in health inequities
Tuesday, November 3, 2015: 10:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
The pursuit of a more just world is fundamental to the ethical practice of public health as well as for the development of policy and practice to reduce and eliminate health inequities. What are the roles and responsibilities of public health professionals faced with social injustice and its impacts on health? What are the ethical implications of participating, or not, in acts of civil disobedience, social and political activism, and the use of media to effect change? This session presents a variety of perspective to investigating the ethical challenges of these complex issues, competing professional goals and expectations in the lives of public health professionals.
