Perspectives in Healing: Women in Medicine Series
Can justice be served when the newest brain science meets the law? Join a conversation with Judith Edersheim, MD, JD, Co-Director of Mass General’s Center for Law, Brain and Behavior about the intersection of the brain and the legal system. Advances in neuroscience are rapidly increasing our understanding of the relationship between brain development, functioning and behavior. The questions that arise as neuroscience, law and public policy intersect may have enormous significance on the future of our justice system.

This program is part of Mass General’s Perspectives in Healing: Women in Medicine series. Join extraordinary women over five evenings as they bring their unique vantage points of science, health and healing to the greater Boston community. Each evening will offer an interactive conversation that covers personal and professional perspectives on medicine, the law, media, happiness, and music as a healing tool. Join some of Boston’s most accomplished women in medicine who share a common purpose: to help us heal.

This event is hosted by Massachussetts General Hospital as part of #HUBweek.
