The Medical Ethics Series is an annual event sponsored by the TMC Library and the UT-Health McGovern Center for Humanities and Ethics.
The Medical Ethics 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. They 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. We've displayed traveling exhibits from national and local museums. We've put on events in conjunction with the Museum of Health and Medical Science of Houston and the Holocaust Museum of Houston.
Free box lunches will be served on a first-come first-served basis.
This project has been funded in part with federal funds from the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health, under Contract No. HHSN-276-2011-00007-C with the Houston Academy of Medicine-Texas Medical Center Library.
Sponsors also include the following leading providers of science and health information. Resources are available at the TMC Library.
