“Medical Ethics and the Holocaust”

The Holocaust Museum of Houston, Texas is presenting a terrific lecture series entitled “Medical Ethics and the Holocaust” over the fall and into the early winter. I am honored to be a participant. I will be debating the issue of assisted suicide against Compassion and Choice’s (formerly, Hemlock Society) Katherine Tucker on 11/27.

Among the presenters during the series will be Leon Kass, Art Caplan, George Annas, and Edmund Pelligrino. The topics will range from assisted suicide, to genetic engineering, to professional responsibility. It all seems very interesting. If you can, check it out.
