The deadline for applications to discuss impact ethics at the ASBH 15th annual meeting in Atlanta is June 24, 2013. There is no charge to participate but applications are required.
“Impact ethics” is bioethics scholarship, teaching, and advocacy that strive to demonstrably and meaningfully improve health care through acts of whistle-blowing, investigative research, working with journalists in challenging existing orthodoxies, engaging in policy-making, and other activities. What counts as impact ethics is itself a matter for discussion, and we invite you to participate in a conversation that examines the meaning of impact ethics and explores particular examples of bioethics work that aim to make a difference.
Faculty members from Dalhousie University, Northwestern University, Western Ontario University, and the University of Minnesota are interested in engaging in personal, informal, and collegial discussions with like-minded people seeking to make an “impact” in bioethics. The discussions have been planned to coincide with the ASBH national meeting in Atlanta, October 25 and 26. Individualized discussions will last less than 2 hours each, and therefore should not interfere with your ability to attend ASBH.
