About the Author

Carey DeMichelis is a doctoral candidate in the Department of Applied Psychology and Human Development at the University of Toronto. Her research focuses on the way adolescent patients make medical decisions- particularly in cases where the family’s cultural or religious beliefs conflict with medical recommendations. Located at the intersection of biomedical ethics, developmental psychology, and medical anthropology, Carey’s research explores the way adolescent autonomy intersects with medical authority, cultural identity and legal president in these complex cases. Carey is a student in the Collaborative Program at the Joint Centre for Bioethics. She is a graduate associate at the Centre for Ethics and at the Centre for Critical Qualitative Health Research at the University of Toronto. Carey earned her M.A. in 2011 from the University of Chicago where she studied comparative human development.
