Medical Ethics Series Continues

August 8, 2011


Each year since 2006, the Houston Academy of Medicine-Texas Medical Center (HAM-TMC) Library and the McGovern Center have co-sponsored a lecture series on medical ethics. Last year's series focused on Medical Ethics and the Holocaust, while this year's series will focus on Health Care Reform.

The 2011 series will start off with a panel discussion on Wednesday, September 21 from 12:00 — 1:30 pm at UT Medical School, Room 3.001. The panel, titled "Medical Ethics: Implications of Health Care Reform for the Future of Medicine", will feature Roberta Schwartz, Senior Vice President of Operations at Methodist Hospital; Dr. Pauline Rosenau, Professor of Management, Policy, and Community Health at the UT School of Public Health; Dr. Laurence B. McCullough, Associate Director of Education and Professor of Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine; and, serving as moderator for the panel, Dr. Thomas Cole, McGovern Chair in Medical Humanities and Director of the McGovern Center for Humanities and Ethics at UTHealth.

Those interested in attending are asked to register with HAM-TMC in advance. Free box lunches will be provided to the first 75 attendees, and attendance to the lecture is also free.

For more information about or to register for this series, see the flyer or visit HAM-TMC's site.

For those unable to attend the panel discussion in person, it will be recorded and posted on the web at Video on Demand a day or so later. Those affiliated with the University will be able to access the video with their login credentials; non-UTHealth affiliated viewers may create an account using their email address.
