Professor Fleck has published on a broad range of topics in health care ethics, especially issues related to health care justice, health care rationing, and health care policy. More recently he has published a number of articles on ethical issues related to emerging genetic technologies, this in connection with his role as co-principal investigator for two three-year NIH ELSI grants. These grants explored the role of community dialogue (rational democratic deliberation) in addressing controversial issues of ethics and policy related to genetics and reproductive decision making. He is currently completing a book for Oxford University Press under the title "Just Caring: The Moral and Practical Challenges of Health Reform and Health Care Rationing." This book explores the role of rational democratic deliberation in addressing problems of health care justice. Professor Fleck is a past president of the Medical Ethics Resource Network of Michigan [MERN], and served for three years as chair of the Philosophy and Medicine Committee of the American Philosophical Association.
