James C. Thomas, PhD, University of North Carolina
Monday 12th March 2018, 1.00 - 2.00 pm
Bioethics Seminar Room, Level One, 71 Frederick Street (entry on Frederick Street)

Ethics are often about imbalances of power. In public health, the power imbalances are principally between a population and its government, rather than between a patient and a clinician. But only recently has public health ethics distinguished itself from medical ethics. The emergence of public health ethics has been driven in part by global phenomena, such as the threat of pandemics. Dr Thomas will describe this emergence and its expression in different cultures.
Jim Thomas is an Associate Professor of Epidemiology and Director of the MEASURE Evaluation project at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, North Carolina
