Photo by Tony RinaldoPhoto by Tony RinaldoI. Glenn Cohen will write a book about the growing phenomenon of medical tourism, the practice of citizens of one country traveling to seek medical care in another country. He will examine the emerging legal and ethical issues brought up by the many varieties of medical tourism—for services that are legal in the destination and home country, for services that are illegal in the home country but legal in the destination country, and for services that are illegal in both places.
