On Thursday, December 2, from 12 -1 pm via Zoom, Mary Ott, MD, will apply public health ethics frameworks and the concept of least restrictive solutions to address the eroding reproductive rights of adolescents in the US, broadly, and Indiana, specifically. She will examine the marked inequities for Indiana adolescents, and discuss how policies created from public health ethics frameworks can improve sexual and reproductive health equity.
The Indiana University Center for Bioethics HERE! series examines health equity and racism through the use of diverse ethics frameworks. This will be the first seminar in the series.
Health, Equity, Race and Ethics (HERE) is a new series offered by the IU Center for Bioethics (IUCB) which features IUCB faculty and outside experts applying an ethics lens to issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). Speakers will explore contemporary DEI topics in health and research using diverse ethical perspectives, including feminist ethics, narrative ethics, human rights frameworks, critical race theory, or other approaches. These talks are meant to be explorations of DEI that can broaden and deepen our understanding of methodology and theory in bioethics, and thus deepen our appreciation for problems and ways forward in equity and diversity.
