Rubella Vaccine And Medical Policymaking: Fetal Rights And Women's Health, Jacob Heller Sep 2000

Rubella Vaccine And Medical Policymaking: Fetal Rights And Women's Health, Jacob Heller

New England Journal of Public Policy

U.S. vaccine policies, to all appearances, are based on assumptions about cost effectiveness, safety, and public health needs. Analysis of the peer review health professions’ discourse about rubella vaccine between 1941 and 1999 challenges this view. There were four justifications for the development of the vaccine: (1) cost-benefit projections about vaccine use versus anticipated birth defects; (2) the desire to prevent “fetal wastage” by vaccinating women; (3) a professional imperative to ensure healthy babies; and (4) a bias among vocal vaccine advocates against “unnecessary” abortion. The role of a fifth consideration, the “cultural provenance” of vaccines for American medicine ...

“Multicultural Adult Foster Care: An Oregon Case Study”, Jamie P. Ross

Jamie P Ross

Abstract This study is an analysis of an immigrant Romanian family that operates an adult foster care home in a well-established community based health system in Portland, Oregon. The study utilizes categories of elder health and satisfaction identified by elders’ themselves, and include: a. engaged interaction, b. mutual satisfaction in relationships, c. ritual and, d. the reduction of social distance. Little research has been done from the caregivers' standpoints. In addition to the opportunity to reveal the construction of a particular form of immigrant assimilated knowledge, this study also has the potential to contribute to sociological and public philosophy and ...


Medicine Through A Feminist Lens, Jamie P. Ross Jan 2000

Medicine Through A Feminist Lens, Jamie P. Ross

Jamie P Ross

Evidence-based research that is planned, performed and distributed with feminist perspectives, premises, and methodologies provides support for the policy efforts and legislative decision-making of service community organizations. Linking this type of medical research to policy facilitates and sustains positive health outcomes in women’s lives. The effectiveness of the legislation can be monitored. Instead of showing that the lack of policy disadvantages women, we can show how policy can reduce disparities. Coordinating policy indicator variables with health indicator variables produces a powerful means for understanding which health indicators need further policy support. I look at the kind of feminist evidenced-based ...


Nietzsche And Eros Between The Devil And God’S Deep Blue Sea: The Problem Of The Artist As Actor–Jew–Woman, Babette Babich Jan 2000

Nietzsche And Eros Between The Devil And God’S Deep Blue Sea: The Problem Of The Artist As Actor–Jew–Woman, Babette Babich

Articles and Chapters in Academic Book Collections

In just one aphorism in The Gay Science, Nietzsche arrays “The Problem of the Artist” in a complex, highly reticulated constellation. Addressing every member of the excluded grouping of disenfranchised “others,” Nietzsche turns to the destitution of a god of love keyed to the self- or inward-turning absorption of the human heart. His ultimate and irrecusably tragic project to restore the innocence of becoming requires the affirmation of the problem of suffering as the task of learning how to love. Nietzsche sees the eros of art as what can teach us how to make things beautiful, desirable, lovable in the ...
