Reshma Jagsi

“What we really need to do is understand how the blurring of that sort of traditional distinction between research and clinical care can lead to new ethical framework and how that's received by society”

This episode of Strength in the Midst of Change features Dr. Reshma Jagsi, who received the Carol Hollenshead Inspire Award for Excellence in Promoting Equity and Social Change at CEW’s 2020 Advocacy Symposium. Dr. Jagsi is the Newman Family Professor and Deputy Chair in the Department of Radiation Oncology and Director of the Center for Bioethics and Social Sciences in Medicine (CBSSM) at the University of Michigan. She discusses her work at CBSSM on understanding how the move to a rapid learning healthcare system is received by patients in the community. Dr. Jagsi leads an NIH R01-funded investigation using deliberative democratic approaches to illuminate patients’ attitudes towards secondary use of data collected in routine clinical encounters. Make sure to listen to the end to hear her advice for students setting out to pursue a role in medicine.
