Sara H. Cody, MD is the public health officer and director of the County of Santa Clara Public Health Department. On March 16 2020, Cody and her San Francisco Bay Area Health Officer colleagues simultaneously issued the nation’s first shelter-in-place orders to slow the spread of COVID-19. Now, a year later, she reflects on the tough decisions she made during the pandemic and the personal repercussions that followed. Cody will discuss ethical dilemmas she faced and how she learned to navigate the extraordinary amount of power entrusted to local health officers during these challenging times. Cody will be in conversation with Stanford Professor of Law and Medicine Michelle Mello.

The mission of the EST Hub is to deepen Stanford’s strength in ethics and generate a fundamental shift in how faculty, staff, and students, whatever their disciplinary home, choice of major, and career pathway, think about our role as enablers and shapers of scientific discovery and technological change in society.
