Join us for our 25th annual summer conference, as we explore anew our individual and common humanity in light of the ever-evolving developments in medicine, science, and technology. Plenary speakers will address being and remaining human in an age of science and technology, genetics, neuroscience & the BRAIN Initiative; bioethics in literature and pop culture; human rights & dignity; and theological examinations of contentment, human flourishing, particularity, and embodiment as they relate to bioethics.
Engage more personally in workshops and parallel sessions on a wide spectrum of perennial and emerging issues in contemporary bioethics relevant to professional practice, public policy, scholarship, the classroom, and making moral decisions in everyday life.
Identify the prospects and challenges for the evolving landscape of bioethical engagement within the context of shifting global and societal realities and advances in medicine and biotechnology.
Explore & discuss the ethical implications of recent developments in medicine, science, and technology with respect to our individual and common humanity.
Evaluate contemporary bioethical discourses in light of ethical approaches that include philosophical, religious, and other perspectives from the medical humanities.
Promote interdisciplinary engagement on pressing bioethical issues.
