A recent edition of The Lancet Student includes commentary from former PHR board member Dr. Holly Atkinson’s students at Mt. Sinai. The medical students describe the efforts of medical professionals and fellow students to support an innovative bill which is currently proposed in New York State. The bill, which PHR helped to write, is an anti-health professional participation in interrogation bill. PHR will also be introducing similar legislation in Massachusetts next month.The article references PHR’s reports and reviews the known violations, the ethical principles involved, and the range of proposed responses. The full article is available online.
