Marion Danis, MD, Head, Section on Ethics and Health Policy, Department of Bioethics, NIH Clinical Center

From the beginning of her medical career, Dr. Marion Danis has addressed important bioethics questions, examining both their bedside application and their institutional and social policy implications.  The issues she has considered include but are not limited to: health care rationing and resource allocation; health plan design and decision-making; global policy for Ebola virus treatment and prevention; and the scholarly and public responsibility of bioethics to address racism and its effects outside the health care system.  Healthcare inequality and lack of access are by no means the only deleterious effects of racism in society; her lecture considers why and how bioethics scholars and others should stand against racism today.
