1. Navigating the Pandemic’s Most Difficult Decisions - 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm

Speaker - Maxwell Smith (hosted by the Harry Crowe Foundation-Olivieri Lecture)

Setting priorities for the allocation of COVID-19 vaccines; vaccination mandates and passports; school closures; lockdowns; travel restrictions. The COVID-19 pandemic has required policymakers to make profoundly difficult decisions that have had far-reaching impacts on the public’s health and well-being. This presentation will explore the crucial role of ethics in navigating the pandemic’s most difficult decisions, the role of the ethicist as an advisor to decision-makers in this context, and, finally, how thinking about ethics in a pandemic has in many cases required a shift from traditional approaches to ethics in medicine and health care.
