Sambhavna

I have directed and produced this 20 minute documentary. It is used as a Global Health Education Tool for the Imperial College London Global BSc and Short course. This is a self shot documentary about the ongoing Bhopal Chemical Disaster in India. Looking at the past/present/future of the best industrial disaster in history. Focusing on the Sambhavna Clinic, a primary healthcare that provides free medical care for victims. Filmed in 2010 edited in 2012. This is a case study of a serious global health issue and highlights the ethics of business in the third world and consequences this can have for health. I'm a 23-year-old medical student with a passion for film and photography. I'm interested in the interplay of medicine, sociology, psychology, research and ethics. Film form is a great means to educate, or simply make people think.

Designer Babies - Physiology and Ethics

An essay I wrote for my course, with which I received an Honours grade (75%). I have an interest in Medical Ethics, and this essay discusses the possible physiology and ethics surrounding the controversial topic. **Introduction** (taken from the essay): My topic is designer babies. A designer baby is defined by the Oxford Dictionary of English as, “a baby whose genetic make-up has been selected in order to eradicate a particular defect, or to ensure that a particular gene is present” (1). In this essay, I shall be exploring the arguments and ideas surrounding the selection of a baby’s genes, which in modern times has become a highly controversial subject. This essay will start by describing the methods by which designer babies may be produced, namely pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) and pro-nuclear transfer, also coined the ‘three-parent baby’ by some (2). Once these procedures have been presented, ethical considerations forming both sides of the debate will be discussed. Whilst the typical argument used is ‘autonomy vs. playing god’, other ideas include whether such procedures will have a drastic effect on the future, and change the world as we know it, as suggested in the science-fiction film Gattaca (3). The ‘nature vs. nurture’ debate is also described: whether we are defined by our genes as shown in Gattaca, or if the environmental influence we are subjected to can cause our genotype to be negligible, i.e. our genes have no impact on our traits; personality, looks etc. The expectations placed upon our offspring; the definition of disease and disability; the fear of the rate of medical development – will all be discussed in this essay. The conclusion will summarise the arguments of both sides, and will attempt to answer the following question: should we be allowed to design our babies?

2012 Ethics session - Neuro Ethics

2012 Annual Alpha Eta Mu Beta Ethics Session Date : Friday 26th October 2012 Location : A310 at the Georgia World Congress Center Start Time : 9.30am - 10.30am Session Chairs : Paul R. Wolpe, Ph.D. and Dominic E. Nathan, Ph.D. Title : Is my Mind Mine ? Neuroscience, Privacy, and the Self Summary : For the first time in human history, we are developing the ability to apprehend information directly from the brain. Brain imaging and allied technologies now allow scientists a glimpse into the subjective thoughts and inner dialogues that have always been private and inaccessible to others. By doing so, they are forever changing the very idea of privacy, raising thorny questions about who should have access to our innermost thoughts. In this talk, we explore the implications of brain imaging not only for personal privacy, but also for legal questions such as Fifth Amendment protections. Alpha Eta Mu Beta (AEMB), the National Biomedical Engineering Honor Society, is committed to promoting ethics in the field of biomedical engineering. This year, AEMB is honored to host Dr. Paul Root Wolpe, Director of the Center of Ethics and a professor in the Departments of Medicine, Pediatrics, Psychiatry and Sociology at Emory University. Dr. Wolpe is also the Asa Griggs Candler Professor of Bioethics and the Raymond F. Schinazi Distinguished Research Chair in Jewish Bioethics. Dr. Wolpe serves as the Editor-in-Chief of the American Journal of Bioethics Neuroscience and is the first Senior Bioethicist for NASA, where he is responsible for formulating policy on bioethical issues and safeguarding research subjects. An accomplished professional in the field, Dr. Wolpe has over 125 articles, editorials and book chapters in sociology, medicine and bioethics and has appeared on numerous broadcasts and printed media, both nationally and internationally.

Legal and Ethical Issues in Medical Treatment of Children with Variations of Sex Anatomy

Speaker: Anne Tamar-Mattis An estimated 1 in 2,000 babies is born with a Difference of Sex Development (DSD or intersex condition). Currently, there is much controversy regarding the best course of treatment for those children with DSD born with atypical genitals. However, little attention has gone to the process of decision-making, or to other important questions such as sterilization of children with DSD or protecting privacy rights. This workshop begins with an overview of the biology of DSD and the basic legal and ethical principles of surrogate consent in pediatric cases. We will then discuss some key legal and ethical questions. Participants will become familiar with key legal and ethical issues in the treatment of children with DSDs, with special attention to unsettled questions of law and uncertain medical outcomes. Participants will deepen their understanding of the ethics and law of surrogate decision-making for children. Participants will be able to identify potential situations in the treatment of children with DSDs where additional legal or ethical consultation may be indicated.
