Program Theme: Where Do We Stand? Critical Distance in Bioethics and the Medical Humanities

After over half a century of work, and as ASBH celebrates its coming-of-age, we have chosen to focus on “critical distance” and our “insider-outsider” status at our 18th annual meeting. Where should we stand to do our best work? Which (and whose) ends should we serve? What brought about the emergence of bioethics and the medical humanities in the world of health care education and delivery — and have we lived up to the expectations? We welcome proposals on the theme of “critical distance” and others in every submission category.


ASBH is committed to ensuring that its annual meeting is accessible to persons with disabilities and that we meet and exceed all of the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Meeting attendees with special needs are strongly encouraged to make this indication on their meeting registration form well in advance of the meeting. We want to welcome you as best we can and, the more notice you give us, the better we will be able to accommodate you so that you have a safe and enjoyable experience.
