November 23: Global Mondays – “Health Care Beyond Our Borders:  Medical Tourism” by Tanya Karwaki, Ph.D. Candidate, UW Law

Global Mondays

Date: Monday, Nov. 23, 2015
Time: 12:30 PM – 1:20 PM
Location: William H. Gates Hall, RM 117

Patients are part of increased globalization. If domestic health care services are less attractive then foreign services, patients with passports may be willing to cross international borders and travel long distances to their health care providers. Such patients choosing to travel internationally for health care services are often called medical tourists in the medico-legal literature.  While reliable data on the numbers of medical tourists are not yet available, medical tourism appears to be an emerging phenomenon.  In the United States, some self-funded employers are incentivizing their employees to participate in international medical tourism.

This presentation provides an overview of outbound medical tourism and domestic state legislation.  It also presents questions about the future of medical tourism and the potential public policy challenges.

December 1: Tech Policy Lab Distinguished Lecture: How Technology Impacts Humans

Event Flyer

Date: Tuesday, Dec. 1, 2015
Time: 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM
Location: Kane Hall, RM 110

Technology designers are new policy makers. No one elected them and most people do not know their names, but the arbitrary decisions they make when producing the latest gadgets and online innovations dictate the code by which we conduct our daily lives and govern our country. As technology progresses, every democratic value and every law comes up for grabs and will likely be redefined by what technology enables or not. Privacy and security were just the first wave. In this talk, let’s see how it all fits together or falls apart.

As a professor at Harvard University, Latanya Sweeney creates and uses technology to assess and solve societal, political and governance problems, and teaches others how to do the same. One focus area is the scientific study of technology’s impact on humankind, and she is the Editor-in-Chief of the newly formed journal Technology Science. She was formerly the Chief Technology Officer at the Federal Trade Commission, an elected fellow of the American College of Medical Informatics, with almost 100 academic publications, 3 patents, explicit citations in 2 government regulations, and founded 3 company spin-offs. She has received numerous professional and academic awards, and testified before federal and international government bodies.  Professor Sweeney earned her PhD in computer science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, being the first black woman to do so. Her undergraduate degree in computer science was completed at Harvard University.

November 2: Free Webinar on Wrongful Conviction 2015: Litigating Claims of Innocence

PLI logo

Date: Monday, Nov. 2, 2015
Time: 1:30 PM EST
Location: Webcast

The conviction of innocent individuals is among the issues getting increased attention as our nation looks more closely at our criminal justice system.  While there are a number of ways individuals can be wrongly convicted, successfully reversing a conviction is incredibly difficult. This is an area where competent legal representation can make a big difference and where there are myriad opportunities for lawyers interested in providing pro bono legal services.  Many of the recent DNA and non-DNA exonerations have occurred as a result of work from innocence organizations in collaboration with pro bono partners.
