On the most recent episode of Inform Me, Informatics, David Addiss of the Focus Area for Compassion and Ethics in Global Health (FACE) and Vivian Singletary of PHII joined the show to talk about big data and how consumers may opt in to supply their health data to private companies. In part two of this conversation, Vivian and David return to explore the ethics of using health data through the lens of population health and public health practice—including how public health practitioners can consider these issues for their own lives and work.
