Faculty at Home: Pam Berenbaum

Monday, September 27, 2021 4:15 PM - 5:00 PM

(ET) Please join Pam Berenbaum, professor of the practice of global health and director of the Global Health Program, for a talk entitled "Who’s Responsible for Our Health? The limits of public health paternalism." COVID-19 is an example of a public health threat in which government interventions reach their current upper limit; beyond that, community protection depends on individual behavior. Many public health problems exist at this interface, pitting community health promotion against individual liberties. In this talk, Pam Berenbaum explores the tensions between paternalism and liberty and how they are resolved (or not) through public health policy, using several examples of interventions, statutes, and public compliance.
