Mini Bioethics Academy: The Ethics of Environmentally Responsible Health Care

October 25, 2017
Minneapolis, Minnesota

Time: 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Location: Malcolm Moos Health Sciences Tower Room 2-530, 515 Delaware St SE
Speaker: PSR's Andrew Jameton, PhD

Environmental Ethics relies on the perspective that we cannot afford to devote unlimited resources to individuals. Yet, Health Care Ethics demands that providers do all that’s possible for their individual patients. How can we approach care for people and the earth with these conflicting priorities?

Perhaps the answer is to think about it more holistically and cooperatively: Is it possible for environmentally responsible health care to exist? Can we design systems that are vigorous, inspire new technologies, and improve patient care, without depleting the world’s limited resources?

This session will engage the audience in a discussion on potential solutions to sustaining an individual's health while also respecting the world's resources and its limitations.

This is part of a three evening event, Mini Bioethics Academy, hosted by the University of Minnesota's Center for Bioethics. Each talk helps the audience learn about and foster discussion on bioethical challenges in today's society. Mini Bioethics Academy is open to anyone interested in learning more about bioethics. Choose to attend one, two or all three sessions. Seating is limited, so registering early is recommended.

Registration: $10/session or $25/3 sessions
Student rate: $5/session or $10/3 sessions
