Progressive Commentary Hour – Dr. Alvin Moss & Kevin Barry

Dr. Alvin Moss (“Woody”) is a professor of medicine and physician-scientist at a major university school of medicine and is the founding director of the university’s Center for Health Ethics and Law. He has published over 150 scientific articles in the peer-reviewed medical literature, and serves on the editorial boards of the Clinical Journal of the American Society of Nephrology and the Journal of Pain and Symptom Management. He is also a reviewer for the New England Journal of Medicine, JAMA, the Annals of Internal Medicine, and multiple other medical journals. He has directed and taught the required course in medical ethics to medical students at my university for 25 years has chaired the statewide network of health ethics committees for 30 years. Dr. Moss’ interest in vaccine safety and vaccine injury was first prompted by ethical concerns of conflicts of interest in vaccine research and public policy. As a practicing physician he prescribes vaccines to patients who choose to receive them after an informed consent discussion. Therefore, he is not ideologically pro-vaccine or anti-vaccine, but rather pro-health, pro-ethics, and pro-informed consent in vaccination. He has testified  multiple times before legislative committees as an expert on vaccines. And finally Dr Moss is a graduate of Harvard University and the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine.
