DeVos Medical Ethics Colloquy

Center for Ethics Director, Tom Tomlinson serves on the committee for the DeVos Medical Ethics Colloquy, a bi-annual series which was started at Grand Valley State University in Grand Rapids, Michigan, by a generous endowment from the Richard and Helen DeVos Foundation. Richard and Helen DeVos saw the need for a forum where subjects of medical and ethical significance could be discussed under the guidance of a learned speaker, with participation by a select panel of experts and the public in general. The proceedings of the Colloquy are printed and distributed free of charge to institutions and interested individuals.
