The 2017 Public Health Ethics Forum, “Optimal Health for Her Whole Life,” focused on a range of health issues and actions to improve the health of women and girls in the United States. The National Center for Bioethics in Research and Health Care at Tuskegee University and the Office of Minority Health and Health Equity at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) host this annual event. This year’s forum explored ways to promote and protect women’s health across the lifespan by emphasizing public health ethics in the practice of public health.

This educational offering is designed to inform participants on the interests and health of women and girls and how best to consider individual rights and group interests in public health interventions, enabling participants to identify public health challenges and opportunities to improve the health of this population and articulate women’s health issues within a public health ethics framework. Content is derived from national leaders in women’s health and public health ethics.
