January 26: Clinical Ethics Seminar Dr. David Addiss presents The Prophetic Voice of Compassion: Implications for Global Health Ethics
Time: 4:00pm
Location: Center for Ethics Seminar Room 162
Synopsis: Global health is a radical proposition, dedicated to relief of human suffering and promotion of human flourishing on a global scale. It is animated by a compassionate impulse that is universal in scope—in sharp contrast to the language of fear and divisiveness that characterizes our current political discourse. The prophetic voice of global health, with its ethic of compassion, health equality, and social justice, is needed today more than ever before. This seminar will explore compassion as a core global health value, the factors that challenge its expression in global health practice, and its role in orienting and guiding global health ethics.
