sanjiv Chopra, mD, maCP
Professor of Medicine

Drs Chopra and Aronson will cover the greatest discoveries and
scientific advances in the last 100 years. All scientific breakthroughs
come in fits and starts. The stories behind the discovery of drugs
like penicillin and statins; the discovery of vaccines for polio and
hepatitis B; the control of HIV, the greatest of all plagues, with
HAART therapy; the cure of diseases such as hepatitis C; the history
of how the birth control pill came about; and advances in cardiology
such as the development of the pacemaker for complete heart
block have not only changed medicine forever but also make for
fascinating tales that combine serendipity with brilliant science.

for every HIV-infected or affected child and his family.” A brief
review of the current status of child survival globally will set the
stage. Dr Kline will then discuss how efforts to scale up the care
and treatment of HIV-infected children can be adapted to fight
a variety of other serious or life-threatening diseases impacting
children and families globally.

MARCH 15, 2013 | SESSION 12 | 5:20–6:00 pm
Ethical Considerations in shared
Decision making*
Contemporary medical ethics emphasizes the importance
of including the patient in the decision-making process, a
concept known as shared decision making. Newly trained
clinicians often take this idea too far. Seasoned clinicians,
in contrast, sometimes dismiss it as unrealistic. This
presentation will use specific examples to show when the
concept of shared decision making is relevant and when
it should be avoided.
*This talk is designated by baylor College of medicine for
.75 credits in medical ethics and professional responsibility.
