Routine Tragic Choices and Expanding the Pie:
Ethical Challenges of Providing Cancer Care with Limited Resources 

The burden of cancer is rising in low- and middle-income countries, and many health systems are ill equipped to deliver equitable cancer care. As oncology capacity develops in low resource settings, frontline clinicians face complex ethical challenges in everyday clinical practice. Dr. DeBoer will discuss ethical dimensions of cancer care at Butaro Hospital, a public district hospital in rural Rwanda supported by the NGO Partners In Health, and share approaches to ethics research and to advocacy for global cancer equity.

This lecture will be held in person for Northwestern students, faculty, and staff—in the Searle Seminar Room in the Lurie Research Building (303 E Superior). Chicago Campus. For those outside the Northwestern community and anyone who would prefer to attend remotely, the Zoom option will continue to be available.
