Dr. Stahl visits Southeast University in China

stahl-crop-2015Last month, Center Assistant Professor Dr. Devan Stahl traveled to Nanjing, China to visit Southeast University. Dr. Stahl’s host was Dr. Guobin Cheng, who recently spent one year at MSU collaborating with Center faculty. Dr. Stahl had the opportunity to meet with Southeast University faculty and graduate students in the School of Humanities, as well as Sociology and Public Health. She also spent time with faculty in bioethics at Nanjing Medical School, and visited two hospitals, meeting various clinicians.

While at Southeast University, Dr. Stahl gave two planned lectures, one to medical students and one to graduate students in bioethics. There was much discussion regarding differences and similarities between American and Chinese bioethics.

Dr. Stahl had a very positive experience, and she was able to investigate possibilities for a potential future MSU education abroad program. Dr. Stahl is thankful to Southeast University and the Office for Education Abroad for supporting her trip.
