Medical Ethics: Where Medicine, Conscience, and Politics Meet, Part Two

On-air date: 
Mon, 11/02/2015

Does everyone have a right to health care? Is gun-violence a medical issue? How do we think about end-of life decisions? Embryonic research? What about doctors who participate in torture? Perhaps no field of human activity is more fraught with ethical issues than medicine. And no physician has done more to raise public awareness of bio-ethical issues than Dr. Steven Miles. In this edition of Truth to Tell, Miles will be back to continue our exploration of some of the most important—and controversial—medical issues facing our community today.
