The Center for Ethics and Humanities in the Life Sciences has long been committed to encouraging informed, respectful, and lively public conversations about the ethical challenges facing the practice of medicine and the health care system – challenges that affect all of us as patients and citizens.
Our Bioethics in the News blog series aims to start conversations about difficult bioethics and health policy issues raised by cases and events reported in the media. The format is simple. At least once a month, Center for Ethics faculty or our colleagues elsewhere will comment on a recent news item they found of interest. You are invited to leave a comment responding to their commentaries; the author will then continue to participate in the conversation for two weeks following their posting. With your participation, we hope to create discussions rich with insights from diverse perspectives. Please join us.
