Do the Right Thing Part I: Bioethics in Our Everyday Lives

Advances in life sciences are giving humans new capacities. New medicines, biomedical procedures, and ways of altering plants and animals are bringing benefits to millions of people. However, these same innovations also have the potential to bring harm and raise other kinds of ethical questions about their appropriate use. Join us for an evening of conversation and discussion with experts from the National Institutes of Health, Kaiser Permanente, and the Johns Hopkins Berman Institute of Bioethics as we explore how to make more informed decisions in our own lives and how bioethics can affect public policy.

Tickets are $7 ($5 for students) and include complimentary refreshments.

Advance registration is recommended as space is limited. Tickets are available through Eventbrite.
