Traumatic brain injury and Collision sports:
ethical, Legal and policy implications


september 27, 2018 | 12-1 pm | Anschutz Medical Campus, Education 2 south, room 2306


Daniel Goldberg, JD, PhD, Associate Professor, Center for Bioethics and Humanities, University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus
Dr. Goldberg is trained as an attorney, a historian of medicine and public health, and a public health ethicist. His work focuses on non-communicable disease, the social determinants of health, and health inequalities.  His current research agenda focuses especially on health and disease stigma.  He has been teaching and writing on the law, ethics, and policy of traumatic brain injury and collision sports since 2007, and maintains an active research program in the area.
This talk will explore some of the legal, ethical, and political complexities surrounding TBI and collision sports, especially in youths and adolescents.  Drawing on some of the author’s most recent work, the talk will focus on issues concerning conflicts of interest and the role of the precautionary principle in guiding ethically optimal public health policies.
