The Threat of the Throwaway Culture to the Elderly in a Time of Covid

The Threat of the Throwaway Culture to the Elderly in a Time of Covid

The current pandemic, which is most deadly to the elderly and those with other underlying medical conditions, unveils the challenges faced by how our elders are cared for in the US. In this dialogue, we will discuss how public health and medical care choices impact such populations, the conditions of congregate living in our country, and the conflict between generations that might inform how policymakers protect the nation’s elderly and most vulnerable.

Please join Professor of Law Lucia Silecchia (Catholic University School of Law), and Professor of theological and social ethics Charles Camosy (Fordham University) on September 16 at 12:30 pm.
