Conversation in BioEthics: Disability

Hello Readers,

My current university is providing a talk on disability and bringing more awareness to it. It is called the Conversation in Bioethics: Disability. I hope that you all are able to tune in and experience the panelists.

The story behind this year’s topic.

Did you know? This year’s topic celebrates one of the issues at the heart of the KIE story: disability.

The Institute was founded in 1971 with support from the Rose and Joseph Kennedy Foundation, inspired in large part by the Foundation’s ongoing commitment to advancing the rights of the disabled. This year’s topic celebrates that founding vision of a world where the voices of the powerless are made powerful through thoughtful reflection and theory-driven advocacy, and it dives deep into some of the most complicated and interesting questions in disability ethics today.

The panelists are:

  • Julia Watts Belser
  • Lydia X. Z. Brown
  • Teresa Blankmeyer Burke
  • Rick Guidotti
  • John Hockenberry
  • Donna Walton

I hope you are able to watch and enjoy.
