Can your employer require you to travel to India for a hip replacement to reduce its healthcare costs? If injury results, can you sue? Can the US prohibit you from travelling abroad to help a relative with assisted suicide-or to obtain an abortion? Join Prof. I. Glenn Cohen, who will discuss the economics, law, and ethics of "medical tourism." Medical tourism is a growing multi-billion dollar industry involving millions of patients who travel abroad each year to get health care. Copies of Professor Cohen's book, Patients with Passports: Medical Tourism, Law, and Ethics, will be available for purchase at this event with check or credit card for $38.66.
