The Paul M. Schyve, MD Center for Bioethics is pleased to provide travel awards to support University of Rochester faculty members and trainees who are presenting scholarly work in the area of bioethics at national or international meetings. Please contact Christine Donnelly for an application.
Margie Shaw, JD, Ph.D., Adrienne Morgan, Ph.D., and Kathryn Castle, Ph.D. were supported by the Center to present at the 9th Annual Cambridge Consortium for Bioethics Education in Paris, France July 2- July 5th, 2019. This international bioethics community shares methods of teaching bioethics in order to facilitate implementation of best practices across countries. Their presentation, “Don’t Touch Me, You #@*#!: Using Methods and Materials from the Humanities and Performing Arts to Teach Bioethics”, demonstrated the University of Rochester’s support of women, people of color, individuals who are underrepresented in medicine and all disenfranchised members of our community on an international platform.
