Bioethics and Being Human

Bioethcs & Being HumanIf you have a passion for biomedical ethics and want to delve deeply into a variety of bioethical issues from a Christian worldview, plan to attend the CBHD conference in June.

Join Nurses Christian Fellowship at The Center for Bioethics & Human Dignity’s 25th annual summer conference, June 21-23, 2018, at Trinity International University, Illinois.

tweetThe conference will explore our individual and common humanity within the ever-evolving developments in medicine, science, and technology. Plenary speakers will address topics such as being and remaining human in an age of science and technology, as well as in the context of genetics and neuroscience, including the BRAIN Initiative.

Other plenary sessions will examine the relationship of bioethics and the medical humanities and human rights and dignity. Explore topics such as contentment, human flourishing, and our physical embodiment as distinctly Christian aspects of being human.

Speakers include Warren Kinghorn, MD, ThD (Duke University Medical School); Christina Bieber Lake, PhD (Wheaton College); Dennis Hollinger, PhD (Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary); and C. Christopher Hook, MD (Mayo Clinic).

The conference is a forum for the charitable exchange of ideas from an array of disciplinary and professional perspectives, from empirical research to conceptual and practical scholarship in the humanities, to case analyses and narrative engagement with issues from everyday clinical practice and bedside care.

This is what other nurses are saying about CBHD’s annual conference:

“The reason I come to The Center for Bioethics & Human Dignity’s summer conference is that it gives me access to some of the top minds and thoughtful hearts in the area of biomedical ethics that enriches everything I touch.” -E. Nora Cavelli, ND, RN, CNS

“I feel like when I leave (the conference) I’ve learned so much.” -Betty Schlatter, CNM

Conference workshops and parallel paper sessions will provide opportunities to engage more personally on a wide spectrum of foundational and emerging issues in contemporary bioethics relevant to professional practice, public policy, scholarship, the classroom, and making moral decisions in everyday life. Workshops will be presented by Christian Medical & Dental Associations, Alliance Defending Freedom, American Association of ProLife OB|GYNS, and more. Continuing education credit options are expected to be available.

The Center for Bioethics & Human Dignity is a Christian bioethics research center at Trinity International University committed to anticipating, interpreting, and engaging the pressing bioethical issues of our day from a Judeo-Christian Hippocratic perspective.
