The Ethics of Evacuation


When natural disasters and violent events strike, who gets saved first, who gets medical resources and who doesn't, how are end-of-life decisions made? Drawing on compelling stories from recent events, including Hurricane Katrina and mass shootings, New York Times Correspondent Sheri Fink will explore the ethical minefields of emergency reposes. Leading up to the 100th anniversary of the Halifax Explosion, Fink will discuss the critical role of preparedness within infrastructure and organizations. Thinking through the difficult issues in advance of crises may be the most important ethical imperative.

Dr. Sheri Fink, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and author.
