Please note that this Reflection Assignment has specific content with unique grading rubric:
Thinking back to the Bioethics lecture Dr. Wolpe presented, choose two (2) research ethics he discussed. Compare and contrast your chosen research ethics on historical context, concepts, and how you may have observed its remnants or historical effects in the current health care system (5 points). Within the context of those same chosen research ethics, consider how they may relate (or differ) to how disease is a socially determined category (3 points).

No plagiarism just put it in your own words. Have uploaded my notes.
Follow the specific content of the essay above and the grading rubric below.
Follow citation format
When completing your reflections (or any written assignments), please be sure to cite your sources! I will accept either MLA or APA format. If you have any uncertainties in either format, make sure to use Purdue OWL (Online Writing Lab), which is a great online resource (https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/).
Each reflection will be worth 10 points. Grading for the reflections will be based on:
2 points for a clear description of a primary point made by the speaker or author that you choose to address and accuracy of the description.
2 points for articulating why you chose this.
2 points for making an original contribution to develop this point in the context of the class.
2 points for your personal reflection on the information from the presentation and reading. This could be accomplished by referencing personal experiences or positioning the material in the context of current US or global events, among other possibilities. This is where you can give opinion, but keep in mind that your opinions must be justified by more than just I thought it was interesting that-type statements.
2 points for thoughtfulness and nuance. An extraordinary reflection will accomplish the above stated criteria while also offering insight and demonstrating a clear understanding of not only the course material but also in-depth engagement with the larger course goals and themes.
