The colloquium will feature presentations focusing on bioethics and social sciences in medicine across multiple disciplines.

The keynote address is the Bishop Lecture in Bioethics, an endowed lectureship made possible by a gift from the estate of Ronald C. and Nancy V. Bishop. Barbara Koenig, Ph.D., will present the Bishop Lecture with a talk entitled: “Does Enhancing Individual Choice and Control Promote Freedom? Challenges in Contemporary Bioethics.”

Koenig is professor of bioethics and medical anthropology, based at the Institute for Health & Aging at the University of California, San Francisco. She is the director of “UCSF Bioethics,” a nascent program that spans ethics research, clinical ethics and ethics education across the university’s four professional schools.
