Philosopher

Yolonda Y. Wilson is an assistant professor in the Department of Philosophy at Howard University in Washington, DC, where she began teaching in 2013. Professor Wilson received her Ph.D. from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She specializes in bioethics as it intersects with social/political philosophy, feminist philosophy, and race. Professor Wilson is broadly interested in the nature and limits of the state’s obligations to rectify historic and continuing injustice, particularly in the realm of health care. She is developing an account of justice that articulates specific requirements for racial justice in health care at the end of life. Professor Wilson has worked as a visiting scholar in the Department of Bioethics at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, MD. Finally, Professor Wilson believes that the philosophic endeavor is enriched when diverse voices are at the table, and she is committed to broadening the discipline.
