    As updates pour in from the hardest hit areas in New York, Detroit, and across Europe the news is filled with stories of respirator shortages, inadequate PPE, and a coming peak that will stretch medical resources even further. In times like these doctors, nurses, and administrators are being forced to make tough decisions. When supplies run out, medical personnel must make difficult decisions to decide who will receive what treatment and how that treatment should be rationed. In the next installment of our Coronavirus Conversations we will be discussing these critical care decisions and how tough choices are being made everyday in hospitals everywhere. Join Duke Experts Dr. Monica Lemmon and Dr. Peter Ubel and Science & Society Deputy Director Buz Waitzkin for this conversation.

    In conflict-affected countries, healthcare systems have been neglected or destroyed, basic services such as water are often lacking, and civilians are already living under extreme stress, often in crowded conditions. As the pandemic spreads, the consequences will likely be devastating, and the UN Secretary General has recently called for a global ceasefire. Join us for a discussion on the pandemic in conflict, responsibilities of warring parties under international humanitarian law, and how advocates are working to promote both peace and health; with Azadeh Moaveni (International Crisis Group), Cordula Droege (International Committee of the Red Cross), Farea Al-Muslimi (Sanaa Center for Strategic Studies), and Kate Kizer (Win Without War); moderated by Priyanka Motaparthy (Columbia).

    Join us for this online webcast of our Duke Law Live regional series presented on Zoom! Warren Buffet recently called medical costs "the tapeworm of American economic competitiveness." The United States continues to spend more of its GDP on healthcare than any other industrialized nation, yet neither Republican nor Democratic health reform proposals target the problem of rising costs. One problem is that policymakers focus on the purchasing of healthcare--regulating insurance markets or monitoring what patients receive-without scrutinizing the production of healthcare. Professor Richman will explore how the healthcare sector can transform into a more affordable and sustainable part of the American economy. Necessary elements will include reorienting the sector to digital technologies, abandoning costly infrastructures, reconceptualizing the role of traditional personnel and practices, and pursuing legal reforms that will emphasize promoting health, not purchasing healthcare.

  • Law School 4000

    One of the cruelest voices we hear can be the one that is in our own heads. Despite often hearing that we should be hard on ourselves to succeed, research shows that self-criticism prevents us from overcoming setbacks and achieving our goals. This session will demonstrate robust evidence for, and opportunities to practice, a different internal voice - one of self-compassion. Presented by Dr. Carrie Adair, Assistant Director of Research at the Duke Center for Healthcare Safety and Quality and sponsored by the Office of Student Affairs. Contact Rachel Mwombela at rachel.mwombela@duke.edu for more information.
