The Child and Medical Treatment: the chance to live, or to die with dignity?

Alumna, Prof Jo Delahunty and Dr Imogen Goold are 'in conversation' on 2 May at Gresham College, Cambridge to discuss what happens when doctors and parents cannot agree on whether a child should be given experimental medical treatment.

Why is there any question mark over a parent’s right to decide if medical treatment for their child continues? 
From the parents of Ashya King who successfully secured proton beam therapy for their son to the despair surrounding baby Charlie Gard and his life-limiting genetic disorder: how does the court make decisions that can potentially prolong life or bring about the death of a child? 

The discussion is being live-streamed at 6pm on YouTube. and you can find out more about the event on the Gresham College website.
