Conference Program
Student Groups collaborate on Bioethic Events

On Feb 21 two UNC student groups offered an evening event for health law students and medical students interested in clinical ethics to discuss issues at the intersections of their chosen professions. The event was hosted by the leaders of the Clinical Ethics Discussion (CEDG) group, Tyler Clay and Mark Baumgarten, and of the Carolina Health Law Organization (CHLO), Nur Kara and Mara Howard-Williams. The group reviewed several ethics consultation cases and described the frameworks they might employ to address the issues raised. Over drinks and snacks, a lively discussion ensued! Faculty from the Center for Bioethics serve as faculty advisors for CEDG and applaud the hosts for organizing this successful event.
