Globalization of Health Care Conference Announcement
Here is an announcement from Harvard’s Petrie-Flom Center:
On May 20-21, 2011 The Petrie-Flom Center for Health Law Policy, Biotechnology and Bioethics at Harvard Law School will host a conference on the Globalization of Health Care. Please refer to the conference schedule for further information. We will bring together leading scholars and policy-makers in the fields of law, public health, public policy, medicine, and government, to discuss several overlapping and diverging instances of health care globalization, including topics on medical tourism, research and development and telemedicine, medical worker migration, globalization and health care equity, and organ transplantation. Though the event is a closed door forum, we have a limited number of spaces available for outside attendees doing research on these topics. If you are interested in attending, please email Kathy Paras, with a sentence or two describing your research background and your specific interest in attending. Please submit your requests no later than May 6, 2011. The availability of space is very limited, but we will do our best to accommodate requests. While there is no registration charge to attend, approved attendees are responsible for their travel expenses.
Having explored some dimensions of global access to care, I can say with confidence that they’ve recruited a great line-up of speakers addressing core issues in the field.
