First Annual Health Care Ethics Research Conference: March 21, 2014
The Center for Health Care Ethics is excited to announce the First Annual Health Care Ethics Research Conference, an annual research conference for undergraduate and graduate students to present research related to health care ethics to an interdisciplinary audience. This conference is designed to foster advanced academic discourse in fields related to health care ethics at the undergraduate and graduate levels, feature and affirm research by Health Care Ethics students as well as increase awareness of ethical issues in science and medicine to the university and wider community.
The conference will be open and free of charge to anyone in the St. Louis community interested in bioethics and medical humanities. However, we expect the majority of participants and observers to be members of the Saint Louis University community. We intend the conference to attract individuals from many different disciplines and foster interdisciplinary dialogue about important issues in health care.
