The Program in Bioethics and Humanities at the University of Iowa Roy J. and Lucille A. Carver College of Medicine will host its annual one day conference on May 19, 2023 in the Medical Education and Research Facility (MERF), Room 1117. With the steady introduction of more treatment options and biotechnologies, an increasing number and range of ethical challenges in health care are emerging.  This conference is designed to help professionals meet these challenges through their work as clinicians, members of ethics committees or ethics consult teams, and administrators.  

Participants made the conference a genuine time of engagement, rather than just an opportunity to be informed. We all benefited from the wealth of experience, depth of insight, and range of perspectives they brought to our discussions during our last conference in 2019. After a hiatus due to Covid-19, we look forward to Ethics in Healthcare Conference 2023!

Intended Audience:  Administrators, Attorneys, Chaplains, Nurses, Nurse Practitioners, Physicians, Physician Assistants, Social Workers, Students, Trainees, and Others
