The National Center for Bioethics in Research and Health Care at Tuskegee University and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Office of Minority Health and Health Equity invite you to the 2020 Public Health Ethics Forum on September 11, 2020, from 1 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. ET via Zoom. This year’s theme is Ethical Dilemmas in Rural Health.

The goal of the 2020 Public Health Ethics Forum is to examine ethical considerations relating to place-based public health approaches in rural areas and populations.

CDC defines public health ethics as “a systematic process to clarify, prioritize, and justify possible courses of public health action based on ethical principles, values and beliefs of stakeholders, and scientific and other information.”1 In order to ensure that public health practice is ethical, ethical theory and an ethical analysis process should guide it. A public health ethics lens ensures a uniquely expanded focus on population health opportunities and challenges.

The forum will feature a diverse group of speakers who will focus on ethical issues for improving health within rural populations as well as sessions covering:

  • Impact of COVID-19 on Rural America
  • Ethical Considerations Regarding the Barriers and Solutions to Accessing Health Care Services in Rural Areas and Populations
  • Physical Determinants of Rural Health: Addressing the Natural and Built Environments and Environmental Justice Communities
  • Working to Achieve Health Equity in Rural Communities

Continuing education is pending for this activity. Please check back for updates.
