There are few spaces where rapid changes in technology impact our lives as profoundly as in the realm of healthcare. While advances in healthcare technologies signal immense progress for medicine and science, they also raise significant questions related to who has access to these innovations, and whether the advances are making us healthier as a whole.
COVID-19 has laid bare the structural barriers at the root of health disparities in the U.S. This year’s Jaharis Symposium centers on the premise that while technological advances have the potential to revolutionize the delivery of health care, they also raise significant questions about who has access to these innovations and whether they are advancing the interests of the populations with the greatest needs.
DePaul College of Law is an approve MCLE provider. This event is worth up to 5.75 general CLE hours.
Co-sponsored by the Mary and Michael Jaharis Health Law Institute and the Center for Intellectual Property Law & Information Technology (CIPLIT®).
Recent discoveries in the field of genetics herald immense innovation for medicine and science. However, they also raise significant questions related to individual privacy, societal uses of the information, and applications in the criminal justice system. For example, how should genetic information be controlled to ensure individual privacy and informed consent for all? What are the individual and societal implications of forensic uses of genetic record matching? How else should genetic information be used within the criminal justice system? Can genomic research ever be truly inclusive and representative of the diversity of our population
This 2020 interdisciplinary symposium addresses issues of distributive and procedural justice in genetics and genomics, as they relate to scientific innovation, intellectual property, human subjects research, and the criminal justice system.
