COVID-19 Ethical and Legal Issues

Men’s Group will meet on Thursday January 14 at 7:00 PM on Zoom. The COVID-19 pandemic has raised a host of legal and ethical issues.  Health care attorney David Peloquin (son of John Peloquin & Eva Mach) will discuss some of the issues he has encountered during the pandemic in advising hospitals, universities, research institutes, diagnostic testing laboratories, pharmaceutical companies, and information technology companies on their pandemic response.  Issues to be discussed include: the tension between patient privacy, medical research and public health uses of COVID-19 information; the development of diagnostic tests for COVID-19; liability immunity for health care providers and employers; and the expansion of telemedicine.  A Zoom link will be sent to all persons on the men’s group email list, if you wish to attend and are not on the list contact John Peloquin.
