  • Disability and the Public Value of Health
  • November 27
  • The Berman Institute of Bioethics welcomes Dr. Sean Aas from the Kennedy Institute of Ethics at Georgetown University to speak as part of their Seminar Series. The event is open to all, and lunch will be provided. 

    Standard policy uses of population health measures presume that disabilities are health states that ought to be prevented because of their negative impact on quality of life. I argue that recent disability scholarship provides reason to believe that this is doubly mistaken: for purposes of public policy, disabilities cannot be ranked (1) as health states; or (2) in terms of their impact on well-being.

  • Women's Mental Health Event
  • November 28
  • Please join the faculty team from the Johns Hopkins Women’s Mood Disorders Center for a discussion of women’s mental health and the advancements made in the underlying science and treatment of depression, bipolar disorder and anxiety in women throughout their lives. Drs. Jennifer Payne and Lauren Osborne will highlight how their research continues to improve the management of these illnesses and how future research holds great promise for additional breakthroughs.
