Over 450 alumni and guests attended Feinberg’s 2018 Alumni Weekend, to reconnect and see how the medical school has changed since they graduated.
Trinity International University's bioethics colloquium series for 2018 will examine the availability of quality health care through a series of three presentations from January through March.
"This year's programs are devoted to the vexing questions of who should receive access to health care, why the voices of certain groups tend to be neglected, and what the church has to offer in the face of today's challenges," said John Kilner, director of bioethics degree programs at Trinity. "Each of the three evenings will feature a Christian leader in bioethics addressing a controversial issue."Kilner, who is also professor of bioethics and contemporary culture at Trinity, will present "Why Do People with Disabilities Receive Less Access to Health Care?" as the lead-off address Jan. 23.
"A Christian voice in contemporary culture is desperately needed if such vulnerable groups are not to be unfairly disadvantaged," Kilner said.
The final presentation March 20 will feature Mayo Clinic ethics pioneer C. Christopher Hook. A senior fellow at Trinity's Center for Bioethics and Human Dignity, Hook will present "Rights of Conscience in Health Care," a look at the difficult issue of whether or not health care professionals can ethically refuse to participate in practices they consider unethical. It will be the inaugural presentation of the endowed annual endowed Trinity Bioethics Lectureship.
All three presentations begin at 7 p.m. in Kantzer Auditorium on Trinity's Deerfield campus. Each session will include a discussion period and refreshments. The public is invited, and there is no admission charge.
