Bioethics One Day Conference: Engaging Ethics in a Polarized World
What does it mean to engage bioethics in an increasingly polarized world? How do we navigate interdisciplinary, pluralism, controversy, and uncertainty as we seek to understand and engage deep questions about life? As we look back on 10 years of OSU Bioethics and forward to the future, we invite you to join us in conversation and learn about the work our faculty, alumni, and colleagues are doing in this sphere.
