Charlene Galarneau, Ph.D., is Assistant Professor of Women’s and Gender Studies at Wellesley College. Her recent book, Communities of Health Care Justice (Rutgers, 2016), argues that just health care must engage communities as critical moral participants in discerning the nature of justice in health care. Other areas of research include the moral meanings of “respect,” health care policy for agricultural workers, USPHS STD experiments in Guatemala, ACA exclusions (undocumented immigrants) and exemptions (health care sharing ministries), reproductive justice for migrant farmworker women, and FDA blood donor deferral policy.
During the Spring 2017 semester, she taught a Feminist Bioethics course in the HMS Master of Bioethics program. She was an HMS Fellow in Medical Ethics (1999-2000); a member of the Ethics Committee of the Tufts-New England Medical Center (1999-2005); and a consultant to the development of a municipal ethics committee in Portland, Maine. Prior to Wellesley College she was faculty at Tufts University, Community Health Program (1996-2005) and held a secondary appointment at Tufts Medical School where she lectured in medical ethics, co-directed an ethics course for second year students, co-led curricular redesign in ethics/professionalism, and co-coordinated a monthly bioethics series with faculty university-wide.
Her articles appear in the American Journal of Bioethics, Health and Human Rights, Hastings Center Report, Public Health Ethics, Journal of Bioethical Inquiry, and Journal of Health Care for the Poor and Underserved.
She received a doctorate in religion from Harvard University with a focus in religious social ethics and health policy, and a master’s degree from the Iliff School of Theology.
