The Center recently connected with two alumni of the Bioethics, Humanities, and Society (BHS) Undergraduate Program following an annual alumni feedback survey. We asked both students to tell us about their current work or study and how it may relate to bioethics.
I will be starting an internship in the fall with Cru, a world-wide Christian ministry. Though I will not directly be using bioethics in my job, I will certainly be using the bioethical principles of pursuing justice, examining moral values, and promoting human dignity and the sanctity of life.
Currently I work with Progressive Auto Insurance managing a spinal cord injury case. Not only am I still interested in bioethics as I further my studies and career goals within healthcare, but the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA) comes up in my work daily. One aspect of this law is protecting the individuals identifiable health information by setting national standards for the security of electronic protected health information.
