The field of bioethics is undergoing rapid change, and the boundaries of classical ethical questions in bioethics can no longer be taken for granted. The rapid pace and breathtaking scope of technological and methodological innovation means that all who desire to effectively engage bioethical questions from a Christian perspective need to continually refresh their information and engage with a wide variety of disciplines, topics, and trends. Bioethics in Transition the 21st annual summer conference of The Center for Bioethics & Human Dignity, is designed to focus on the changing nature of bioethical engagement. The conference takes place June 19-21, 2014, on the Deerfield campus of Trinity International University. Bioethics in Transition will help you:
- Identify the prospects and challenges for the evolving landscape of bioethical engagement within the context of shifting global and societal realities and advances in medicine and biotechnology.
- Explore and discuss the ethical implications of recent developments in medicine, science, and technology with respect to our individual and common humanity.
- Evaluate contemporary bioethical discourses in light of classic philosophical, religious, and care-oriented perspectives.
- Promote interdisciplinary engagement on pressing bioethical issues.
There are a variety of ways to benefit from this conference, whether by attending for a single day or by registering for the advanced institute. There are preconference and postconference seminars, and attendees can earn CME or graduate academic credit.
Paige Comstock Cunningham, JD, executive director of The Center for Bioethics & Human Dignity, emphasized the need for engagement with these rapidly changing bioethical questions: “We are realizing that some of the traditional bioethical questions are not the questions being raised today, which means that we have to have new ways of thinking about how to answer these questions.” Watch her personal invitation, and register today for the 21st annual CBHD summer conference.
