  • BHH grad student Hannah Carpenter was accepted to the Archer Fellowship

    January 3, 2023, 08:00 AM by Beverly Claussen

    Founded in 2001, the Archer Center is where Texas meets the world. As the Washington, D.C., campus of The University of Texas System, the Center provides talented undergraduate and graduate students from across the UT System with the opportunity to live, learn, and intern in the nation's capital.

  • Dr. Bryanna Moore's article published in Hastings Center Report

    December 27, 2022, 08:00 AM by Beverly Claussen

    In pediatric health care, parents and clinicians sometimes have competing ideas of what should be done for a child. In this article, we explore the idea that notions of what should be done for a child partly depend on one's perception of one's role in the child's life and care.

  • Dr. Jacob Moses has article published

    December 20, 2022, 08:00 AM by Beverly Claussen

    The article places key recommendations arising from the National Academy of Medicine’s National Plan for Health Workforce Well-Being into a broader historical context. Health Affairs Forefront is described as “a heavily cited, rigorously-reviewed” publication “for health policy professionals and the health care industry to catch up on the ideas that thought leaders and peers are exploring in the field."

  • Dr. Bryanna Moore publishes on "good death" in Pediatrics

I distinguish, first, between metaphysical and practical disagreements about the notion of a good death, and, second, between accounts of a good death that minimally and maximally promote the dying child’s interests.

  • Dr. Lisa Campo-Engelstein publishes on fetal moral status

    December 14, 2022, 00:00 AM by Beverly Claussen

    The antiabortion movement is increasingly using ostensibly scientific measurements such as ’fetal heartbeat’ and ’fetal pain’ to provide ’objective’ evidence of the moral status of fetuses. However, there is little knowledge on how clinicians conceptualise and operationalise the moral status of fetuses.
