We are delighted to announce that the Center for Bioethics and Social Sciences in Medicine (CBSSM) Research Colloquium will occur on May 1, 2018 (9 a.m. to 2 p.m.). The CBSSM Research Colloquium will feature the Bishop Lecture in Bioethics as the keynote address. Barbara Koenig, PhD, will present the Bishop Lecture with a talk entitled: " Does Enhancing Individual Choice and Control Promote Freedom? Challenges in Contemporary Bioethics." Dr. Koenig is Professor of Bioethics and Medical Anthropology, based at the Institute for Health & Aging, University of California, San Francisco. She is the Director of "UCSF Bioethics," a nascent program that spans ethics research, clinical ethics, and ethics education across the university's four professional schools. The lecture is jointly presented by CBSSM and the Ronald C. and Nancy V. Bishop Lectureship in Bioethics fund. A call for Colloquium presentation abstracts will be sent out in mid-February. Abstract submissions are welcome from all disciplines both within UM, as well as other institutions. The CBSSM Research Colloquium brings together presenters highlighting research related to bioethics, health communication, and medical decision making. Please distribute widely.
