Bill of Health’s Top 10 Posts of 2020

By Chloe Reichel

In 2020, topics relating to bioethics, health law policy, and biotechnology took center stage in the collective national and global consciousness.

The COVID-19 pandemic has, unfortunately, posed countless urgent bioethical and health law policy questions. The police killing of George Floyd in May 2020 sparked wider awareness of the systemic racial injustice in the U.S., which permeates all aspects of society and has profound detrimental effects on health.

Our contributors have grappled with these issues on the pages of this blog

We have published over 365 posts in 2020, many of which address aspects of the COVID-19 pandemic, connections between race and health, and other pressing issues in health law policy, bioethics, and tech.

This post highlights the top ten most-read articles published on Bill of Health in 2020. Thank you for your readership. We hope to continue our deep and far-ranging coverage in the coming year.
