The Bioethics Program of Union Graduate College and the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai is pleased to offer an online Masters-level course in Public Health Ethics.
In this online course, students learn about ethics and public health, and the ways in which these two fields interconnect. The course focuses on ethical theory and the discipline and history of public health, using case studies to illustrate the application of ethical theory to public health practice. Topics include infectious and genetic disease, personal and environmental behaviors that contribute to health, and the ethics of conducting public health research.

Prof. Meyer is Assistant Professor of Bioethics and Director of Bioethics Policy at Union Graduate College.
