Empirical Bioethics & Social Justice: Working Toward Health Equity in Trans Communities

April 14, 2021

Beth A. Clark, PhD, HEC-C, RCC
Allen-Berenson Postdoctoral Fellow

The 2021 Allen-Berenson lecture will focus on the importance of empiricism in bioethics research and clinical practice in terms of furthering social justice for communities experiencing health inequities. Dr. Clark will discuss the need for empirical bioethics research specifically in the field of trans healthcare. An overview of Dr. Clark’s recent studies addressing pressing issues in trans youth healthcare – such as youth capacity to consent to hormone therapy – will be provided. Additionally, knowledge translation strategies to mobilize this research in both clinical and policy realms will be highlighted.
