The Medical Ethics Series is an annual event sponsored by The TMC Library and the UTHealth McGovern Center for Humanities and Ethics. The Series began in 2006. Speakers have included professors from TMC institutions, traveling scholars from universities around the country, Holocaust survivors, religious leaders, authors and activists. Speakers have given lectures, led discussions, given tours of exhibits and recounted their memoirs on a wide variety of topics from Euthanasia to Eugenics to Atomic Warfare. The Library has displayed traveling exhibits from national and local museums. We have hosted events in conjunction with the Museum of Health and Medical Science of Houston and the Holocaust Museum of Houston.
The TMC Library is pleased to host exhibits bringing to light issues in medical ethics. Click to view our current or past series of lectures:
