THIS YEAR’S TOPIC
What is a disability, anyway?
In an era of ever-growing pharmaceutical enhancement, what counts as intellectually disabled, and why would that matter? How does the way we define disability (and normalcy) impact the just distribution of resources in society — and the way society treats those who happen to fall outside the norm? How are foundational concepts in ethics like dignity or autonomy complicated by reflection on the many ways we are dependent on others in the course of any “normal” human lifespan?
Each year, the Kennedy Institute of Ethics convenes a wide-ranging and personal conversation among expert panelists, preceded and informed by student work on the same topic. We can’t wait to share this year’s conversation, complicating the very notion of “disability.” Join us this February, in-person at Georgetown University, or digitally via live-stream, as our team goes deep on this thought-provoking and deeply important issue.

Did you know? This year’s topic celebrates one of the issues at the heart of the KIE story: disability.
The Institute was founded in 1971 with support from the Rose and Joseph Kennedy Foundation, inspired in large part by the Foundation’s ongoing commitment to advancing the rights of the disabled. This year’s topic celebrates that founding vision of a world where the voices of the powerless are made powerful through thoughtful reflection and theory-driven advocacy, and it dives deep into some of the most complicated and interesting questions in disability ethics today.

The Group aims to accept for review any aspect of skin disease management which it feels will be of value to professionals or to lay people with an interest in skin disease. It will thus accept all randomized controlled trials of interventions relevant to the prevention of skin disease, the treatment and management of established skin disease, and the prevention of complications of skin diseases. This includes alternative/complementary treatments.
POSITIVE EXPOSURE Lecture/ Workshop: Uniformed Services University Bethesda, MD
The F. Edward Hébert School of Medicine is traditional in many ways, but it has unique tenets that make it a special place. Among its singular features is a curriculum that places special emphasis on military and public health medicine. This foundation prepares students for the important roles they will take on as uniformed physicians. Our program melds the study of basic science, the clinical practice of medicine and military leadership training to produce innovative doctors. This signature blend of education and training distinguishes USU as a leader among institutions of learning.

Our focus is to provide students with the appropriate knowledge, experience and mentoring to become competent, sensitive and motivated genetic counselors. This is accomplished through a variety of educational experiences including coursework, clinical training, research project preparation and supplementary activities such as case conferences, grand rounds, journal clubs and seminars.
The NEW Center for Persons with Disabilities
POSITIVE EXPOSURE virtual presentation: 5:30 – 7:30 pm
The Care Center for Persons with Disabilities is a one-of-a-kind enterprise dedicated to improving the quality of life for people with all forms of disability. World-wide, people of all ages live with physical or intellectual disabilities either developmental or acquired as they age. Their quality of life is lower by virtue of the lack of well-trained dental practitioners as well as a shortage of facilities capable of delivering necessary care.
Approximately 3,500-square-feet on the second floor of the School’s Robert Schattner Center has been allocated to create the Center, a space that is specifically designed for patients with disabilities. The Personalized Care Suite, the patient care portion of the Center, features 12 operatories, all of which accommodate wheelchairs. There is also a room outfitted with hover dental chairs and at least one room accommodates patients on a gurney. In addition, a stimulation room with low lighting and sound baffling will serve patients with sensory sensitivities. All students will gain direct experience treating patients in the Center and will be expertly trained to handle the unique needs of people with sensory impairments, behavioral problems, psychosocial issues, and other conditions requiring sensitive and comprehensive handling.

Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine: 3 Day Student Elective
October 7, 2020
October 21, 2020
November 4, 2020
Department of Medical Humanities
POSITIVE EXPOSURE Elective:
Positive Exposure (PE) and its film program, FRAME (Faces Redefining the Art of Medical Education) weaves critical medical information, with personal and lived experiences, for healthcare professionals in training, clinicians, families and communities. Each film, 8-12 minutes in length, provides a greater understanding of the most commonly seen diagnoses by demonstrating hallmark characteristics of a particular condition, while modeling an attitude of respect for the humanity of the patients.
This elective will provide students with the opportunity to participate in the creation of a Positive Exposure FRAME (Faces Redefining the Art of Medical Education) film. In Phase 1, Students will explore partnerships with specialists and advocacy organizations, the research process, prompt development and interview techniques. In Phase 2, students will participate in a virtual forum that will enable students to ask questions of specialists and an advocacy group, as well as interview individuals and families living with a particular genetic condition. In Phase 3, students will examine transcripts and a rough film edit of virtual interviews, and discuss the pertinent details to be included in the final film.
