This Week in Bioethics
The increasing use of powerful information technology tools in public health brings an informatics-driven promise to promote health and reduce morbidity and mortality.

A new chapter co-authored by the IUCB’s Eric M. Meslin, Ph.D. explores these issues and more: Goodman, K. & Meslin, E. (2014).
