Join us for Pandemic Ethics: What Have We Learned So Far and what Challenges Lie Ahead? with Mildred Solomon and Bradford Gray.

Historically pandemics raise a large and complex set of ethical issues. These questions include, for example, how best to prioritize who will have access to inevitably scarce resources like vaccines, how to design public health measures that balance liberty with the common good, and where to draw the line in managing global and national interests.  Pandemics also inevitably reveal the fissures in a society, illuminating longstanding inequities, and impacting the most vulnerable communities.  In this session, Bradford Gray, an eminent sociologist and chairman of The Hastings Center’s board of directors will interview the president of The Hastings Center, Mildred Solomon, who has been writing and speaking nationally and internationally on the ethical issues raised by the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Mildred Solomon has an international reputation for her research on, and advocacy for, wiser health care and science policy. In addition to her leadership role at The Hastings Center, she is Professor of Global Health and Social Medicine, part time, at Harvard Medical School, where she directs the school’s Fellowship in Bioethics, a program that builds the bioethics capacity of the Harvard teaching hospitals. Dr. Solomon is both a bioethicist and social science researcher.

Bradford Gray is senior fellow emeritus at the Urban Institute and editor emeritus of The Milbank Quarterly, which he edited for 13 years. Before coming to the Urban Institute in 2004, he was the founding director of the Division of Health and Science Policy at the New York Academy of Medicine (1997-2004.). Earlier he was director of the Institution for Social and Policy Studies and the Program on Nonprofit Organizations at Yale University, with a faculty appointment in the Department of Epidemiology

The Hastings Center is a nonpartisan, nonprofit research organization created from multiple disciplines, including philosophy, law, political science, and education. The Hastings Center was critical to establishing the field of bioethics in 1969 and has been evolving ever since.

This program is free and open to all and is presented by Little Falls Village in collaboration with COFFE (Council of Former Federal Executives & Associates) and in partnership with the Little Falls Library of Montgomery County Public Libraries.
