The Philosophy Behind Bioethics, A Catholic Perspective, will be a three-part seminar on 3 Saturday mornings, July 14th, July 28th and August 11th, from 9 AM until noon.

The goal is to backfill our knowledge of the philosophic traditions of the Catholic Faith to gain a better understanding of our bioethical teachings. No prior philosophy education or preparation is needed. Physicians of all Faiths are welcome.
