Welcome to Baltimore, home of the Johns Hopkins Berman Institute of Bioethics! The theme of this year’s ASBH Annual Conference is core to the Berman Institute’s work on helping to shape the future of bioethics. We’re working to develop new approaches to energize public discussion about important issues in the field, and to help inform and guide policy.
Emblematic of our efforts are two new projects, highlighted below, that have launched this week. playing god? is a 10-episode podcast exploring the complex ethical questions that often accompany lifesaving medical innovations. Moral Histories is an oral history project that is collecting the stories and perspectives of the founding generation of bioethics. These projects reflect a vision for a future of bioethics that includes engaging broad audiences in our work. Please have a listen, then share your thoughts about what the future of bioethics should be.
Finally, to help you take full advantage of your time in our city, Berman Institute faculty, staff, and students have created a guide to their favorite Baltimore destinations below. We hope you enjoy your visit to our city!
