15th Annual Health Ethics

Presented by the MU Center of Health Ethics

October 4, 2019

Smith Forum • Reynolds Journalism Institute, MU School of Journalism

In today’s lexicon, the term “echo chamber” describes an increasingly common phenomenon where exposure to ideas, beliefs and data points is often devoid of competing perspectives. With social discourse that is plagued with polarized politics, filter bubbles and an overemphasis on algorithms, how can we as health care providers navigate the ethical nuances of practice, communication, and the intrinsic biases we hold in order to best care for our patients?

Make plans to join us for this daylong event, either in person or via live stream!
