Vardit Ravitsky will present her paper, “The Shifting Landscape of Prenatal Testing: Between Reproductive Autonomy and Public Health.”
Vardit Ravitsky is an Associate Professor in Bioethics Programs in the Department of Social and Preventive Medicine at the University of Montreal School of Public Health, where she researches reproductive technologies, genetics, prenatal testing, research ethics, and health policy. She is the lead researcher on the Pegasus project, exploring ethical, legal, and social implications related to the implementation of non-invasive prenatal testing in Canada.
The Health Law Policy, Bioethics and Biotechnology Workshop, led by Professor I. Glenn Cohen, provides a forum for discussion of new scholarship from leading researchers and opinion-makers in the fields at the intersection of health and law.
Workshops are held on selected Monday evenings from 5-7 pm, and are open to the public. Copies of the papers will generally be posted one week in advance on the Petrie-Flom Center website. Click here to view the full schedule.
