The Center for Bioethics and Social Justice 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 ran monthly from 2013-2021, featuring over 100 commentaries from more than 25 authors.
The series aimed to start conversations about difficult bioethics and health policy issues raised by cases and events reported in the media. The format was simple. At least once a month, Center faculty or our colleagues elsewhere would comment on a recent news item they found of interest. Readers were invited to leave a comment responding to their commentaries, and the author would continue to participate in the conversation for two weeks following the publication date.
