Faithful Medicine: Bioethics and Christian Thought
Christians struggle to make sense of modern medicine and its bioethical challenges. Abortion, euthanasia, AIDS and stem cell research continue to make headlines and fuel debate. But less public concerns also occupy us, such as infertility, aging, chronic pain and our neighbour's unmet medical needs. This course, through the help of interactive case studies, will explore 1) medicine's new role as a powerful secular institution; 2) ethical methods commonly used in public and Christian debate; 3) theological terms and perspectives that are (or should be) used to support bioethical viewpoints. The goal is to assist health professionals, church leaders and the wider Christian community to think well and Christianly about medicine, and thereby offer reasonable and faithful approaches to bioethical deliberation. Continuing Medical Education (CME) credit will be offered for health professionals.

Bioethics Course and Conference at Regent College
This coming Summer School, Regent College is offering a bioethics course and conference. I am excited by it because this means Regent College is recognising the importance of Christian bioethics deliberation in context of our faithful engagement with the world.
