For over two decades, the Center has hosted the Romanell Lectures on Medical Ethics and Philosophy.
For more than six years, the UB Romanell Center (née Center for Clinical Ethics) has presented a monthly noon lecture series on topics ranging from clinical ethics to research ethics and philosophy of medicine. As of Spring 2018, we have 'retired' the Third Tuesday Lecture Series. We will retain, however, the practice of bringing in notable speakers from out of town.
In fact, it is our goal to have two conferences each year, one in the fall and one in the spring). The day and time for those is still under discussion.
We are grateful for the attendance and support many of you have provided for this series. I'd be delighted to entertain suggestions for outside speakers, or other bioethics projects you would like to discuss. The Romanell Center will continue to host regular conferences and seminars, including the Governor's Lecture series.
Thanks again for your support and don't hesitate to contact mewith comments or questions.
All Lectures: Third Tuesday, 12:00 Noon, at locations listed on the UB Medical Campus.
