Fauquier Hospital Hosts Conversation on the Ethics of Communicable Diseases

Contagious diseases – from measles to Ebola – are prominent in the news, nationwide. Fauquier Hospital, along with every other healthcare facility in the U.S., must consider the welfare of healthcare workers as well as the safety of patients and their families.

A panel of experts will examine “The Ethics of Care in the Face of Communicable Diseases,” from 12 noon to 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 15, in Fauquier Hospital’s Sycamore Room. The public is invited to attend the discussion.

Dr. Elizabeth Martin, chairman of the Bioethics Committee at Fauquier Health, will discuss the

ethical issues involved. Dr. Cee Ann Davis, former director of the Rappahannock-Rapidan Health District of the Virginia Department of Health, will address questions surrounding communicable diseases.

Lunch will be served. Please contact Kim Vest at 316-4730 or to reserve your space.
