Episode 5 of No Easy Answers in Bioethics -- the podcast from the Michigan State University Center for Ethics and Humanities in the Life Sciences -- is now available: Public Perception of Psychiatric Interventions: Cabrera, Bluhm, and McKenzie - Episode 5.
How has the hospital note changed from being handwritten on paper to typed on a computer? Is it possible to perform talk therapy with a video camera? Do external devices remind wearers to enact healthful behaviors or enable them to forget? These are some of the questions raised at the Media Medica: Medicine & the Challenge of New Media conference held at Johns Hopkins October 27-28, 2017. Jeremy Greene and Gianna Pomata organized this international meeting to explore the triangulation of media, genre, and technology.
