28th Annual Dorothy J. MacLean Fellows Conference on Clinical Medical Ethics

Chicago, IL US
November 11, 2016 to November 12, 2016
Each year for the past 28 years, the MacLean Center has hosted a conference that draws speakers who discuss today’s issues in clinical medical ethics. The conference audience usually numbers 250 to 300 and includes more than 100 former faculty and fellows. The conference remembers Dorothy Jean MacLean, who helped create the MacLean Center and was deeply committed to its work. D.J.

We are delighted to welcome over 40 outstanding speakers to this year’s conference.
