Event description

Description

Dr. Sheldon Rubenfeld (clinical professor of medicine at Baylor College of Medicine), the executive director of the Center for Medicine After the Holocaust, is coming to Emory to offer a public lecture in honor of the 70th anniversary of the Nuremberg Code Dr. Rubenfeld's talk will address the following themes:

The doctor-patient relationship has been the beating heart of medicine at least since the time of Hippocrates.

Nineteenth and twentieth century events have fundamentally altered this foundational bond.

The transformation of the medical ethos by Nazi physicians, the best in the world at the time, offers a cautionary tale for patients, doctors, and healthcare policy makers at the dawn of the twenty-first century.
