Student Scholarship Recognition Day (SSRD) was created by the late CLA Dean Larry Cress. The main goal was to provide an avenue for Willamette students to share their exemplary work with their peers, educators, friends, and family. Another goal was to include the papers and projects presented during in a digital archive of student work completed at Willamette. Visit the SSRD web site.

This project addresses several ethical issues related to pandemic influenza preparedness planning. In a pandemic emergency, medical and public health energies would likely be most focused upon preventing further spread of the disease and keeping people alive rather than responding to ethical quandaries that emerge in the pandemic’s wake. It is therefore critical to examine such quandaries and develop ethical guidelines before the pandemic occurs. Ethical issues considered in this project include quarantine, distribution and use of medical supplies, and the obligations and responsibilities of medical professionals and the government vis-à-vis patients and the public. This project also examines the position of socioeconomically disadvantaged populations who tend to suffer disproportionately in epidemic emergencies.
