Annual Bioethics Conference

April 11, 2019 - April 12, 2019


Controlling Death? The policies, practices, and ethics of choosing when we die

Hosted by The Center for Bioethics at Harvard Medical School

April 11-12, 2019
Harvard Medical School Campus, Boston, MA

This two-day conference will explore ethical, legal, and clinical aspects of evolving practices of euthanasia and physician-assisted death. How ought we to think about the choices of determining the time and manner of death for our loved ones, our patients, and ourselves? How should the health and legal professions respond to these rapidly evolving practices and choices?
