This DeCal course focuses on the science and ethical considerations of digital medicine and biotechnology. We will explore the four pillars of bioethics, including Beneficence, Non-maleficence, Autonomy, and Justice in the context of data-driven health practices such as personal health apps, data-centered genetic testing, and Covid-19 epidemiology, through modern case studies.
We will consider questions such as: How has the overturn of Roe vs. Wade emphasized privacy implications in period tracking apps? Is a Big Data approach the best informant of public health mandates?
Class grading will be based on participation in class discussion and debates, completion of selected readings, and a final project.
