Law School, Room 3041 5:00 PM
Can your employer require you to travel to India for a hip replacement to reduce its healthcare costs? If injury results, can you sue? Can the US prohibit you from travelling abroad to help a relative with assisted suicide—or to obtain an abortion? Join Prof. I. Glenn Cohen, who will discuss the economics, law, and ethics of “medical tourism.” Medical tourism is a growing multi-billion dollar industry involving millions of patients who travel abroad each year to get health care.
I. Glenn Cohen is Professor of Law and the Faculty Director of the Petrie-Flom Center for Health Law Policy, Biotechnology & Bioethics at Harvard Law School. He is one of the world’s leading experts on the intersection of bioethics and the law, as well as health law.
Copies of Professor Cohen’s book, Patients with Passports: Medical Tourism, Law, and Ethics, will be available for purchase at this event with check or credit card for $38.66. Please check below if you plan to purchase a book.
