“One of the main reasons I decided to attend Global Bioethics Initiative’s Summer Program is to learn more specifically about the nature of global bioethics. We are all global citizens of the world and I learned so much more about our global populations and their ethical issues. The presenters were experts in their field and challenged us all to think. It is difficult to choose one particular lecture since they were all so thought provoking, from stem cell research, gene editing, ethical issues in international research, global epidemics, religious traditions and impact on bioethics, organ harvesting, ethics of transplantation, and the list goes on. I have been in the clinical and academic nursing field for over 25 years but I learned so much from every single presentation.” Esma Paljevic EdD, RN, CPNP, Assistant Professor, Lienhard School of Nursing, Pace University
“In just the first week of the course, I’ve been exposed to world-class thought leaders speaking on critically emerging ethical issues of global impact in ways that transform hypothetical case studies to real-world dilemmas.
