As medical advances are made, ethical implications can arise at every step. With the health care system facing challenges from rapidly progressing technology to the strain of available resources and how they are distributed, what are our responsibilities as practitioners and how do we make sure we are informed patients and caretakers?

In this Unlimited Learning Expert Webinar Series session, Peter A. Clark, S.J., Ph. D. '75, Professor and Director of the Institute of Clinical Bioethics, and the John McShain Chair in Ethics, and Andrew C. von Eschenbach, M.D. '63, President, Samaritan Health Initiatives, Inc., will discuss guiding principles in medical decision making and the importance of what is right and just for the community. The conversation will be moderated by Bridget McNierney '19 '21 (MBA), first year medical student at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine.
