Health Across Borders: 
Bioethics & Medical Humanities Conference Series
(June 3–July 8, 2021 • Thursdays 12-1pm • Online)

This year the Northwestern Bioethics & Medical Humanities annual conference will be held as a series of one-hour virtual sessions, spread over five weeks. The theme was chosen in 2019 to stimulate conversation around how borders, both geographic and conceptual, can establish inclusion and exclusion, unity and conflict—ideas that have taken on new dimensions and urgency in the past year. Following the keynote, each week will feature a three or four brief presentations on the theme or other current work in the field of bioethics and medical humanities.

Cosponsored by the Institute for Public Health and Medicine and the Program in Global Health Studies
