Announcing CBHD's 2019 Conference: Taking Care: Perspectives for the End of Life

Wednesday, April 17, 2019

The Center for Bioethics & Human Dignity's 26th annual conference, Taking Care: Perspectives for the End of Life, is June 21-23, 2018 on the campus of Trinity International University in Deerfield, Illinois.

Join us for our 26th annual conference, Taking Care: Perspectives for the End of Life. Distinguished speakers examine foundational concepts and bioethical considerations related to death, dying, and end-of-life care and decision-making. Plenary sessions focus on theological foundations, contemporary cultural practices surrounding death and dying, the role of faith in end-of-life care, disparities in care, cost of care and patient goods, and lessons from the Netherlands for physician-assisted suicide.

Workshops and paper sessions explore additional issues from among the wide spectrum of traditional and emerging bioethical topics, ranging from beginning-of-life issues and dilemmas in clinical ethics to reproductive and genetic ethics, disability ethics, emerging technology assessment, historical analyses, philosophical foundations, policy considerations, and legal implications.

The Center for Bioethics & Human Dignity’s annual conference is a leading venue for Christian bioethical engagement, providing opportunities for equipping and education, professional development and academic engagement, as well as networking for professionals, researchers, policymakers, educators, and students across a variety of disciplines and professional contexts.
