Coronavirus Conversations: Ethics Of The Use Of Wearables For Early COVID Detection

Virtual Meeting     4:00 PM

Thursday August 20, 4:00 PM (EDT)


Hosted by Duke Science & Society and Duke +Data Science


Wearable technology provides us with a rich data set that can enhance our understanding of and response to the COVID-19 pandemic. But the use of this data must come with ethical guard rails, which are easy to rush past in the attempt to tame the pandemic.

Join Duke+ DataScience and Duke Science & Society and our panel of technical and ethical experts to discuss the ethics of using data generated by wearable technology to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Panelists :

Dr. Jessilyn Dunn,Ph.D., Georgia Institute of Technology; Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering, Assistant Professor – Track V of Biostatistics and Bioinformatics, Member in the Duke Clinical Research Institute, Duke University


Dr. Nita Farahany, J.D., PhD, Duke University; Director, Duke Initiative For Science & Society; Professor of Law and Philosophy, Duke University

Coronavirus Conversations: A new, virtual event series from Duke Science & Society


As we practice social distancing, engage in online learning, and work remotely we are burdened with questions about how this pandemic is affecting our lives, the lives of those we love, and the society we are a part of. Over the course of this event series faculty and staff from Duke Science and Society will join academics, lawmakers, students, researchers, doctors, and others to shed some light on the events happening around us and what life will start to look like moving forward.

We will have moderated, casual lunch-time discussions with brief Q&A held via Zoom chat.
