Boston University School of Public Health’s Center for Health Law, Ethics & Human Rights presents the annual Cathy Shine lecture. The lectureship honors the memory of Cathy Shine and her dedication to the rights of all those in need of care.

The adoption of electronic health records, social media, and new attitudes about disclosure of highly personal information call into question traditional notions of health privacy. This talk will consider the desirability and feasibility of protecting informational health privacy in the 21st century.
