From the Duke University Undergraduate Bioethics Society:
Join us for an exploration of current controversies in bioethics related to this year’s theme, “Bioethics: More Personal or More Global?” at the 2011 National Undergraduate Bioethics Conference hosted at Duke University, March 18-20, 2011. It will address a broad range of bioethical issues, from personal genomics to global health.
The conference will bring together leaders in bioethics and students from across the nation for focused talks and lively discussion of critical issues. It offers a unique opportunity for students to submit a paper or participate in one of 16 teams to debate complex bioethical topics in the Bioethics Bowl. A highlight of the conference will be an evening conversation on Ethical Issues and TV Medical Drama featuring Larry Kaplow, writer/producer of House and Jeremy Sugarman, MD, Professor of Medicine and Bioethics at Johns Hopkins University and founder of the Trent Center for Bioethics, Humanities & History of Medicine at Duke.
Please register early for limited space. The early registration deadline for reduced conference fee is February 18.
