Human Dignity, Health Care, and the Holocaust Presentation

Sep
25
Merck Auditorium
1:30 pm to 3:00 pm

Throughout the world, we are fighting battles over access to health care, the rights of the patient to make autonomous decisions, mental health care, structural and institutional racism, unethical medical experimentation, equity of care, and the regulation of rapidly advancing medical technologies through medical genetics.

Using the Holocaust as the historical lens through which we examine contemporary issues in society provides a reminder of the absolute necessity of understanding our history as members of humankind and learning from the mistakes of our past. This presentation explores the intersection of these two ideas. 

Dr. Stacy Gallin from Misericordia University will present, with questions and answers to follow. 

This event is just one of the many festivities during Mercy Week!
