Introduction by Dr. Mahan Kulasegaram
How Should We Think about Activist Responses to Medical Research and Medical Care?
Patient empowerment is something we often speak of as an unmitigated good. But how should we think about criticisms, claims, and demands coming today from individuals who say they speak for various groups of patients and medical research subjects? This talk—offered by an historian of medicine who has been both a medical activist and a target of activists—will consider this problem historically, politically, and ethically. Case studies will be drawn particularly from the history of medical approaches to sex, sexuality, and gender.
