Medical Ethics and Preparedness in Emergencies
Date/Time: Tuesday, January 31st, 2 pm ET / 11 am PT
Speaker: Sheri Fink, MD PhD
“Emergency preparedness is all about facing our vulnerabilities, including planning for worst-case scenarios.” ~ Sheri Fink, M.D., Ph.D.
Pulitzer prize-winning author Sheri Fink combines a doctor’s perspective with thorough research to show the weaknesses in healthcare emergency planning. From her ground-breaking book, Five Days at Memorial: Life and Death in a Storm-Ravaged Hospital, to her research on Ebola and Hurricane Sandy she looks at how prepared our healthcare system is to face serious emergencies.
We invite you to join us for a thought-provoking discussion covering Hurricanes Katrina, Hurricane Sandy, war zones, disaster areas, and how ethics weave into emergency preparedness as first responders face impossible decisions.
