KIE scholar to offer grand rounds, two lectures

Henry Richardson, PhD, professor of philosophy and senior research scholar with the Kennedy Institute of Ethics at Georgetown University, is set to begin grand rounds and a set of two lectures addressing the the ancillary-care obligations of researchers at the University of Cincinnati on Friday, April 8.

In the first talk, Richardson will speak on “Global Bioethics and the Ancillary-Care Obligations of Biomedical Researchers” for CCTST Grand Rounds on the medical campus. From 4-6 pm, Richardson will give his second talk: “Locating Medical Researchers’ Ancillary-Care Obligations Within the Division of Moral Labor,” to attendees in the Tangeman University Center on the main campus.

Richardson is the editor of Ethics and author of the 2012 book Moral Entanglements: The Ancillary-Care Obligations of Medical Researchers (Oxford University Press), a continuation of a decade-long research project in defense of a position on a neglected topic in medical research ethics: the moral obligations and dilemmas facing medical researchers to provide medical care beyond the purview of their research in settings where medical resources are scarce and access to medical care is limited.
