About the Program
Join us for a luncheon presentation by renowned bioethicist Arthur Caplan, PhD, of NYU Langone Medical Center. Dr. Caplan will address the following questions, among others:
- Is it fair for social media to play a role in determining which patients get access to experimental treatments?
- Can rescuing individual patients in need be reconciled with an evidence-based regulatory approval process for new therapies?
- And, if there is a duty to “rescue” terminally ill patients by paying for access to experimental therapies who has that obligation?
