I. Glenn Cohen, Faculty Co-Director of the Petrie-Flom Center and Professor at Harvard Law School, discussed his new edited volume The Globalization of Health Care: Legal and Ethical Issues, published by Oxford University Press in March 2013. The book ties together the manifestation of health care globalization in four related subject areas -- medical tourism, medical migration (physician "brain drain"), telemedicine, and pharmaceutical research and development -- and integrates them in a philosophical discussion of issues of justice and equity.
The event also featured a panel discussion with Dr. Sue Goldie, Faculty Director of the Harvard Global Health Institute and Director of the Center for Health Decision Science at the Harvard School of Public Health, and Dr. Neel T. Shah, Founder and Executive Director of Costs of Care and Assistant Professor at Harvard Medical School and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. Einer Elhauge, Petrie Professor of Law at Harvard Law School and Founding Director of the Petrie-Flom Center, moderated.
