Ethics Slam!

“Grub first, then ethics” – Bertolt Brecht

The One Health Club is excited to host our first ‘Ethics Slam’. This event includes dinner and will take place at 5:30p on March 3 in Louis Loft.

Attendants will participate in small group discussions, facilitated by various health science professionals. Ethical issues are often complex. A One Health Approach is essential to allow for a comprehensive understanding of a problem before an ethical decision can be made.

This is a great opportunity to discuss relevant issues facing health professionals today. Come out and join us!

Date: March 3, 2014
Time: 5:30p
Place: Louis Loft
FREE DINNER

Facilitators and Topics:
(Facilitators and topics will be listed as they are confirmed)
Dr. Trisha Dowling – “Superbug Skin Infection: Is it Frank or Fido’s fault?”
Dr. Ryan Meili – Ethics of Medical Radicals: Physicians who fight or work the system for their patient’s benefit
Elad Ben-Ezra – Hormones in Beef
