  • Elizabeth and Chauncey Leake Memorial Fund and PMCH Seminar Series

    Summary: Jeff Levin, Ph.D., M.P.H. University Professor of Epidemiology and Population Health Professor of Medical Humanities Director, Program on Religion and Population Health Baylor University Interconnections between the faith-based and medical sectors are multifaceted and have existed for centuries, including partnerships that have evolved over the past several decades on the U.S. This talk outlines ten points of intersection that have engaged medical and healthcare professionals and institutions across specialties, focusing especially on primary care, global health, and community-based outreach to undeserved populations. In a time of healthcare resource scarcity, such partnerships- involving religions congregations, denominations, and communal and philanthropic agencies- are useful complements to the works of private-sector medical care providers and of federal, state, and local public health institutions in their efforts to protect and maintain the health of the population. At the same time, ethical and political challenges and obstacles remain, mostly related to negotiating the complex and contentious relations between these two sectors.

  • John P. McGovern, M.D. Award Lecture in the Medical Humanities

    Summary: For over 40 years, much ethical discourse has steered toward the belief that a patient is able, and thus has a right, to refuse life saving treatment after experiencing a trauma. However, that perspective is based on a narrow set of cases. To have such influence on an entire area of ethical inquiry may raise concerns about the integrity of that inquiry. Furthermore, the commitment to this belief on the part of clinical ethicists and health care providers may not adequately take into account the complex nature of both the trauma patient's autonomy and the provider's role in decision making.
