Controlling Death: Ethics, law, and the health professions
April 11-12, 2019
Harvard Medical School Campus, Boston, MA
The Annual Bioethics Conference will explore ethical, legal, and clinical aspects of evolving practices of euthanasia and physician-assisted death. How ought we to think about choices regarding determining the timing and manner of death for ourselves, our loved ones, and our patients, and how should the health professions respond? Join us at our two-day conference to be part of the conversation.
