COVID-19 continues to impact health and economies around the globe, but the pandemic has had another effect: exposing entrenched inequalities in society and healthcare—and creating new ones.
The ethical problems surrounding coronavirus are numerous and profound. “COVID-19 has revealed truths and accentuated challenges that are already inherent in our society and healthcare system,” said Keith Wailoo, PhD, Henry Putnam University Professor of History and Public Affairs at Princeton University.
Drawing on lessons learned from past pandemics and decades of studying U.S. cultural and racial politics, Wailoo will explore how the novel coronavirus is shaping how we prioritize pain and relief in the 2020 William C. Stubing Memorial Lecture.
