Annual Conference

12/8/2021 Update: The 2022 Ethics in Healthcare Conference has been postponed due to COVID. Please check back for updates once infection rates decrease.

In 2019 the very successful "Ethics in Clinical Practice" conference was developed. The 124 participants enjoyed active workshops and the opportunity to network with health care employees, community members, and UR students from across Western New York. Because of its success, the conference is now an annual event and will continue to focus on important ethical questions in health care.
