About The Event

Based on his own experience as a medical doctor, Dr. Stuart Wolf will help us explore how prudence informs the complex choices at the intersection of personal freedom and societal responsibility with regards to health care. These matters are especially pertinent during the current COVID-19 pandemic, but they are certainly not new to doctors, regularly called to apply general rules and principles to very specific and unique cases (and human beings), based on their best - prudential - judgment.
