The UNC Charlotte Center for Professional and Applied Ethics presents Lynette Reid, Ph.D., as part of the Bioethics Resource Network's biosurveillance series. 

Dr. Reid is an Associate Professor in the Department of Bioethics at Dalhousie University (Halifax, Nova Scotia), cross-appointed to the Division of Medical Education.  Her work is at the intersection of public health ethics, clinical ethics in primary care, and social and political philosophy of health systems.  Recent publications include an analysis of the distributional nature of population health and a discussion of the implications of Piketty and colleagues’ work on economic inequality for bioethics and health equity. Her current projects lie in two distinct areas. One involves questions in ethics and in philosophy of medicine that arise in current cancer screening controversies.  The other involves normative and empirical challenges to systems of universal health coverage.  In this second project, she continues the theme of the value of health equity in an era of widening social inequality in health.
