Featuring Carl Elliott, MD, PhD, Professor, University of Minnesota In this presentation, Carl Elliott will expose the uncharted dark side of medicine, shining a light on social and legislative changes that have sacrificed old-style doctoring to the values of consumer capitalism. Are there certain things that should not be bought and sold? In what ways do the ethics of business clash with the ethics of medical care? And what is wrong with medical consumerism anyway? Using the ongoing Markingson v. University of Minnesota case concerning the protection of human subjects in medical research as a vehicle, Elliott will address these questions. Registration fee for CLE credit is $35. Free for Hamline Law Alumni and guests not earning CLE. Hosted by the Hamline Health Law Institute.
