Dr. Farr Curlin, a Senior Fellow at the Kenan Institute for Ethics, is among a group of Duke faculty inviting others to join an ongoing series dedicated to discussing ethics and modern healthcare.

Duke faculty and graduate students can join biweekly, clinical case-based discussions every other Tuesday from 4 to 5 p.m. in the Trent Center Conference Room in the Seeley G. Mudd Building, adjacent to the Trent Semans Center for Health Education.

For the May 16 discussion, participants will talk about the birth and death of a baby with anencephaly, a defect in which a baby is born without parts of the brain and skull. Conversation will surround questions of what is morally permissible in such a situation. The group will be presented with guiding questions to initiate discussion.

Each meeting features a case study, followed by moderated discussion led by Curlin, Associate Research Professor of Philosophy Jennie Hawkins or Dr. Phil Rosoff.

Light refreshments will be served. For more information, email or call (919) 668-9000.
