MacLean Center Ethics Seminar Videos: The First Batch

Since late September, ScienceLife has been posting near-weekly recaps of the annual Maclean Center for Clinical Medical Ethics seminar series. The topic for this academic year, “Health Disparities: Local, National, Global” (pdf), has brought together an all-star cast of physicians, biologists, economists, social scientists and other experts to present research on some of the biggest challenges facing health care in the United States and around the world. Most of the sessions have been videotaped, and the first batch of those videos recently went live on the MacLean Center website. Here’s a digest of the first seven seminars available to watch and the ScienceLife posts that briefly summarized the discussions. The videos have also been added to each post.
