The Center for Bioethics & Human Dignity’s 25th Annual Conference: Bioethics & Being Human
Join us for our 25th annual summer conference, as we explore anew our individual and common humanity in light of the ever-evolving developments in medicine, science, and technology. Plenary speakers will address being and remaining human in an age of science and technology, genetics, neuroscience & the BRAIN Initiative; bioethics in literature and pop culture; human rights & dignity; and theological examinations of contentment, human flourishing, particularity, and embodiment as they relate to bioethics.
Engage more personally in workshops and parallel sessions on a wide spectrum of perennial and emerging issues in contemporary bioethics relevant to professional practice, public policy, scholarship, the classroom, and making moral decisions in everyday life.
Plenary speakers include Christina Bieber Lake, PhD; Dennis Hollinger, PhD; C. Christopher Hook, MD; Warren Kinghorn, MD, ThD; Paul Scherz, PhD, PhD; Read Mercer Schuchardt, PhD; Michael Sleasman, PhD; Pia de Solenni, SThD; Morse Tan, JD; and Stephen Williams, PhD.
Conference workshops are sponsored by leading organizations such as Alliance Defending Freedom, American Association of Prolife OB|GYNS, Americans United for Life, Charlotte Lozier Institute, and Joni & Friends. These workshops include sessions on rights of conscience, disability, pain management & addiction, among others.
Conference rates are reduced in honor of CBHD’s 25th anniversary. Continuing Medical Education credit is pending and expected to be available.
