Daniel P. Sulmasy, MD, PhD, an author of Washingtonian’s “Ask A Coronavirus Ethicist” series, will be featured in a virtual event Thursday about medical ethics in the coronavirus pandemic.
Sulmasy is acting director of the Kennedy Institute of Ethics and a faculty member of the Pellegrino Center at Georgetown University. As part of Georgetown’s weekly Books for a Better World series, Sulmasy—the co-editor of “Methods in Medical Ethics”—will speak with Georgetown University Press Director Al Bertrand about the difficult ethical questions that may arise during the Covid-19 pandemic. According to a press release about the event, “topics will include the possible necessity of rationing healthcare resources in the event of a surge, the individual responsibility of those who are not healthcare professionals, questions of privacy and surveillance when it comes to public health, and research ethics.”
