Exploring Ethics: Healthcare Disparities --The Palliative Power of Understanding Science with Stanley Maloy

4/2/2012; 56 minutes

Too often, ethnicity and socioeconomic status affect access to medical services. A lack of scientific knowledge can impede a patient's ability to understand and influence their healthcare. Stanley Maloy, the dean of the College of Sciences at San Diego State University, offers a path to help diverse communities understand science well enough to make informed health care choices. This lecture is part of the Henrietta Lacks series sponsored by the Center for Ethics in Science and Technology in San Diego. (#23213)
