Health Ethics Seminars

The seminars focus on emerging issues in healthcare. The speakers are usually affiliated with various healthcare disciplines, programs, and institutions, and have special expertise, practice and/or academic knowledge about specific ethical issues. For the Fall 2021 / Winter 2022 terms, we will be offering 3-4 seminars/month. Each month we co-host one Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) event. Most seminars take place from 12:00 - 13:00 MDT/MST on Thursdays via Zoom application. All talks are open to healthcare professionals, scholars, researchers and the public. Everyone is welcome!
