Yale Global Initiative on Climate Change and Public Health Ethics: "Climate Change and Public Health Ethics: Our Duty to Displaced Global Populations"
Join Dr. Laura Bothwell, YSPH Associate Research Scientist in Epidemiology (Microbial Diseases), for "Climate Change and Public Health Ethics: Our Duty to Displaced Global Populations." Registration is required.
Dr. Bothwell is an ethicist and historian of public health. Her research examines social, historical, and ethical dimensions of epidemiology with a particular focus on randomized controlled trials (RCTs). Her current book project examines how international and national policies have influenced trial rigor and ethics, protections of vulnerable trial subjects, and participant diversity in RCTs. She also does work on the intersection of climate change, epidemiology, and ethics. She teaches public health ethics and the history of public health, and provides pre-departure ethics training in global health practice.
