The Health of Dreamers after DACA: Ethical and Practical Considerations... - Mark Kuczewski

Chicago - 12:00 PM - 12:45 PM

The Master of Arts in Medical Humanities & Bioethics

Presents

A Montgomery Lecture

With

Mark G. Kuczewski, PhD, HEC-C
The Father Michael I. English, SJ, Professor of Medical Ethics
Director, Neiswanger Institute for Bioethics & Health Policy
Loyola University Chicago

The Health of Dreamers after DACA:
Ethical and Practical Considerations for Medicine and Public Policy

The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program positively impacted numerous dimensions of the social determinants of health of undocumented youth who qualified for the program. It also made colleagues of some of this population as they matriculated into medical schools and residency programs. This presentation will review the brief history of DACA and its many benefits to medicine and society. DACA is now under stress and future directions must be charted. This presentation will argue that the moral claims of undocumented youth, including those based on health and healthcare, ethically require a perpetual DREAM Act, not a one-time fix. Common counterarguments will also be considered.
