Matthew Wynia to Speak at Bander Center Inauguration on April 8th, 2008
On April 8th, 2008, at 3:30 p.m. in the LRC Auditorium at Saint Louis University Medical School, the Bander Center for Medical Business Ethics will be officially inaugurated.
The keynote speaker for the inauguration is Matthew Wynia, MD, MPH, FACP, who has served as the Director of the Institute of Ethics at the American Medical Association (AMA) since 2000. An internist and infectious disease specialist at the University of Chicago Hospital, Wynia was also past president of the American Society for Bioethics and Humanities (ASBH) and past chair of the Ethics Forum of the American Public Health Association (APHA).
Wynia's address is titled "Ethics and Pay for Performance (P4P): What is known of the effects of P4P on physician ethics and the patient-physician relationship?" By confronting the ethical dimensions of a business challenge facing today's physicians, Wynia's talk aligns perfectly with the mission of the Bander Center. "I was very pleased that Matt accepted our invitation to deliver the inaugural lecture because the American Medical Association is engaging medical business ethics now more than ever, and Matt is an excellent and knowledgeable speaker," said Dr. James DuBois, Director of the Bander Center.
The keynote address will be preceded by opening remarks from Dr. Steven Bander concerning his inspiration and vision for the Center, and by DuBois on the goals and current activities of the Center. After the address, there will be a reception on the SLU medical campus.
