At this year's Medical Ethics Society conference, participants will be provided with the broad medical and legal foundation needed to understand public health issues. They will also be exposed to the social issues surrounding these challenges as they relate to society as a whole and to the Jewish community in particular.
Topics covered include obesity, smoking, vaccinations, circumcision, allocation of scarce resources, and more. Participants will hear from experts such as Professor John Banzhaf of George Washington University Law School who, over the past few decades, has made major contributions towards antismoking laws and who is now fighting the obesity epidemic, as well as Rabbi Moshe D. Tendler, M.D. and Rabbi Edward Reichman, M.D., some of the leading experts in Jewish medical ethics today. This conference will provide an overview of the fundamental ethical dilemmas surrounding public health, and discuss how the system of Halacha (Jewish law) approaches these complex issues.Please join us on Sunday November 6th at 500 West 185th Street, New York, NY.
