A recent article in the American Journal of Bioethics explores “The Bioethics of Environmental Injustice: Ethical, Legal, and Clinical Implications of Unhealthy Environments.” The piece was co-authored by Keisha Ray, PhD, and Jane F. Cooper, JD, MA (University of Toronto).

Ray and Cooper discuss the need for bioethicists to address environmental injustices to appropriately tackle health justice, noting that environmental health should be prioritized in bioethics with a commitment to vulnerable populations and justice.
