HealthLawProf Blog is excited to welcome the third of our four guest bloggers for May, Professor Nadia Sawicki:
Professor Sawicki is a faculty member at Loyola University Chicago School of Law's Beazley Institute for Health Law and Policy. Her current research focuses on issues relating to informed consent, particularly inreproductive and end-of-life care contexts; government speech in the public health arena; and professional discipline by state medical boards. An expert in both health law and bioethics, she is drawn to areas of conflict between law and ethics - including the government's use of persuasion, physicians' professional responsibilities when they act on behalf of the state, conscientious objection by medical providers, and the law's recognition of rights to recovery for invasion of contested interest.
