2019 Public Health Ethics Forum: Ethical Dilemmas in Child and Adolescent Health WD4216 – Watched a recording of the event
Program Description

This educational activity is designed to reduce the gap in awareness regarding factors that affect healthy aging among children and adolescents. Experts in the field and youth speakers will explain and illustrate these factors through data, programmatic activities, and personal experiences. This forum will address the educational gap through increasing participants’ ability to describe: ethical issues that affect the health and well-being of children and adolescents; how addressing public health ethics issues can decrease disparities among children and adolescents; biological, social, or cultural factors that affect children and adolescents; ethical dilemmas involving child and adolescent autonomy versus parental rights; how technology can affect the health and well-being of children and adolescents; and approaches by interdisciplinary teams that may be effective in advancing equity in the health and well-being of children and adolescents.
