Weighing the Decision [electronic resource]: Ethics and Science of Stem Cell Research

On August 9, 2001, President George W. Bush announced his support for federal funding of limited embryonic stem cell research. This NewsHour program offers a revealing snapshot of that historic intersection between science and public policy. It features a panel of ethicists and researchers expressing their views on the President's decisions-including University of Chicago professor Leon Kass, who soon became chair of the President's Council on Bioethics; Dr. Dianne Krause, a stem cell researcher and Yale School of Medicine professor; Alta Charo, a University of Wisconsin professor of law and bioethics; and Richard Doerflinger, Deputy Director of Pro-Life Activities for the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.

Henrietta Lacks Was Never Compensated for Cells [electronic resource]

This ABC News report looks at the amazing scientific contribution of Henrietta Lacks. While being treated for cervical cancer in 1951 at Johns Hopkins Hospital, doctors removed some of her tumor cells without her knowledge. Her cells have been used in research from the polio vaccine to numerous cancer treatments. Biomedical firms have made millions selling her cells for research, but her family has never been compensated. In a sad irony, some of her descendants can't even afford health insurance.

The Case for HIPAA Risk Assessments [electronic resource]

A comprehensive security risk assessment is an important and necessary strategy for health care organizations in identifying gaps in their privacy and security environments.

This program covers the reasons for a HIPAA risk assessment, explores both HITECH and HIPAA enforcement, and considers real-world examples of mistakes made by covered entities and what it cost them.

Generation Rx [electronic resource]: Resisting the Culture of Overmedication

At the 1991 FDA Prozac hearings, scores of impassioned victims described how the drug pushed them to the brink of suicide. But the pharmaceutical industry succeeded in getting its own message out, ushering its products into the mainstream while voices on the opposite side of the debate have largely faded. This film reawakens many of the arguments made against the culture of psychotropic prescription. Assembling a plethora of leaked memos, flawed studies, and previously unseen conference footage, the documentary points to a pattern of collusion between drug manufacturers and the regulatory watchdogs at the FDA. Meanwhile, many experts believe that our society is in the grip of an epidemic of doping and drugging. Has an era of mercenary medication dawned, in which we'll forget what it [...]

DNA Dreams [electronic resource]: China's Genetic Research

What if we could identify the genes for human intelligence? Would a brave new world of perfect people be our future? This program profiles two young scientists at China's BGI, an internationally-renowned genome sequencing center, raising questions about the societal implications of their work.
