26th Annual Florida Bioethics Network/UM Bioethics Conference on April 6

The Florida Bioethics Network and the University of Miami Institute for Bioethics and Health Policy will host the 26th annual spring conference on Friday, April 6, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Miami Marriott Biscayne Bay Hotel. To view the conference program and to register, visit www.cvent.com/d/35q438.

This program—perhaps the oldest and largest community bioethics conference in the country—will feature presentations on public health ethics education, guns as a public health issue, medical marijuana, the role of clergy on ethics committees, electronic informed consent, and unusual advance directives.

The conference is made possible with the support of leading regional hospitals and other health care institutions that have identified professional development in ethics as an essential component of high-quality practice. These include Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, UHealth Tower, Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, Jackson Health System, and the Miami Veterans Affairs Medical Center.

The program will be approved for continuing education credits for physicians, nurses, social workers, attorneys, and chaplains.

UM students, UM faculty and staff, and Jackson staff can attend the conference without charge. Please use the following discount codes when registering online:
