“One of the main reasons I decided to attend Global Bioethics Initiative’s Summer Program is to learn more specifically about the nature of global bioethics. We are all global citizens of the world and I learned so much more about our global populations and their ethical issues. The presenters were experts in their field and challenged us all to think. It is difficult to choose one particular lecture since they were all so thought provoking, from stem cell research, gene editing, ethical issues in international research, global epidemics, religious traditions and impact on bioethics, organ harvesting, ethics of transplantation, and the list goes on. I have been in the clinical and academic nursing field for over 25 years but I learned so much from every single presentation.” Esma Paljevic EdD, RN, CPNP, Assistant Professor, Lienhard School of Nursing, Pace University
“In just the first week of the course, I’ve been exposed to world-class thought leaders speaking on critically emerging ethical issues of global impact in ways that transform hypothetical case studies to real-world dilemmas. Nowhere else could I have had the opportunity to engage in provocative dialogue with the Board President of Doctors Without Borders about the horrific ethical challenges and dilemmas the organization faces in war zones. A truly profound experience for a long-time nursing professor and biomedical researcher who has taught bioethics for many years.” Nancy King Reame, MSN, PhD, FAAN, Director, Pilot Studies Resource of the Irving Institute for Clinical & Translational Research, Mary Dickey Lindsay Professor of Nursing (Emerita), Columbia University Medical Center
“After becoming a lawyer and being unsatisfied with practicing private law, I decided to turn to bioethics. Bioethics has given me the opportunity to combine law with other fields that attract me, such as sociology, psychology, and medicine. The summer school program organized by the Global Bioethics Initiative was exactly the introduction to bioethics that I was looking for. The program offers great lectures covering a broad range of subjects, allowing discussions and exchange of ideas. I highly recommend this summer school program.” Manon Clayette, Catholic University of Lile, France
“The two-week summer school has given me the opportunity to reflect on current and future challenges in the transdisciplinary field of global bioethics. Lectures on bioethical theory, reproductive health, global epidemics, humanitarian action, genetics etc. have exceeded my expectations by far and networking possibilities have added further value to the learning experience. Discussing bioethical topics with highly motivated individuals from across the world and from various disciplines has been an enriching experience I would not want to miss.” Johanna Kostenzer, PhD Candidate in Political Science at University of Innsbruck, Teaching and Research Assistant in International Health and Social Management at Management Center Innsbruck, Austria
