National Undergraduate Bioethics Conference at Puget Sound Friday and Saturday

To add to the already abundant intellectual offerings on campus this week, Professors Suzanne Holland and Kristin Johnson remind us that the National Undergraduate Bioethics Conference will take place here on campus this Friday and Saturday, March 26 & 27. They write:

[W]e hope that if you are free and interested, you will feel welcome to attend any sessions during the two days. You can see the preliminary schedule on the conference web site. […W]e want to thank the many Puget Sound faculty who are participating in the conference in one way or another, giving seminars on areas of expertise, judging the Bioethics Bowl, and so on.

Finally, we call your attention in particular to the three plenary addresses, all of which are in Schneebeck. Each is being delivered by a highly regarded bioethics scholar, and each talk quite distinct. Please feel free to join us!

Friday Morning 9:30-10:30: Annette Dula, PhD: Health Disparities as a Bioethics Issue: A New Challenge. Dr. Dula is an expert in African-American health and bioethics issues.

Friday Evening 6:00-7:00: Carl Elliott, MD, PhD: An Atypical Suicide? The Clinical Trial as Pharmaceutical Marketing Tool Dr. Elliott’s current research is on the ethics of “Pharma.”

Saturday Morning 10:15 – 11:15: Hilde Lindemann, PhD: Family Perspectives on Health Care. Dr. Lindemann is well known for her work in feminist bioethics and philosophy.
