The Kennedy Institute of Ethics, along with the Pellegrino Center for Clinical Bioethics, is profiled in the summer 2023 issue of Georgetown Health Magazine. KIE director Dan Sulmasy, PCCB director Myles Sheehan, SJ, and Ethics Consultation Service chief Claudia Sotomayor are featured in the piece, along with Casey Haldeman (G’21), a Pellegrino Scholar while enrolled in the Clinical Nurse Leader program at the School of Nursing .
