Talk examines health professionals’ role in interrogations
SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Jonathan Moreno, Ph.D., who most recently served as the director of bioethics review on the transition team for President Barack Obama, will present a free public lecture,“The History of Ethics of Intelligence Community Behavioral Research” Thursday, Sept. 30, from 12:30 to 2 p.m. in 2231 Weiskotten Hall, 766 Irving Ave., Syracuse, on the Upstate Medical University campus. The lecture will particularly focus on the ethics of a health professional role in interrogations. The lecture is presented jointly by Upstate Medical University and Syracuse University.
“We are fortunate to have someone of Dr. Moreno’s stature address the Upstate community,” said Amy T. Campbell, J.D., M.B.E., assistant professor at Upstate’s Center for Bioethics and Humanities and Syracuse University College of Law and associate faculty member of the Bioethics Program of Union Graduate College at Mount Sinai School of Medicine. “His work in this area has been reported in national media outlets such as the New York Times, so this lecture is a wonderful opportunity to hear directly from Dr. Moreno about the implications of healthcare professional involvement in interrogations.”
Moreno is the David and Lyn Silfen University Professor and professor of medical ethics and of history and sociology of science at the University of Pennsylvania. He is also a senior fellow at the Center for American Progress in Washington, D.C., and a visiting professor of Biomedical Ethics at the University of Virginia. He has been a senior staff member for two presidential commissions, has given invited testimony for Congress, and has published 17 books, monographs, anthologies and textbooks and more than 250 papers, reviews and book chapters. He is a member of several editorial boards.
Moreno was also a special expert in the Department of Clinical Bioethics at the Warren Magnuson Clinical Center of the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda. He was a member of the National Human Research Protections Advisory Committee, a senior consultant for the National Bioethics Advisory Commission, and has advised the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy.
The lecture is presented by Upstate Medical University’s Department of Psychiatry, Forensic Psychiatry Fellowship Program; Center for Bioethics and Humanities; the Consortium for Culture & Medicine; and the Institute for National Security and Counterterrorism at the Syracuse University.
