The Philosophy Department is pleased to announce Medicine in Action, a year-long bioethics speaker series organized by Dr. Alison Reiheld and funded by a SIUE Excellence in Undergraduate Education grant. Medicine in Action is an Ethics Across the Curriculum program designed to provide undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty interested in medical ethics with an opportunity to "do ethics" outside of a formal classroom setting. Each of the five sessions in the 2011-2012 series will involve a 45-minute presentation by an expert followed by 45 minutes of active audience participation and discussion of the topic. All are welcome, whether because you are a philosopher, a future health care professional, or--like all of us--a patient.
Please contact Dr. Reiheld with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
