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 30 discussion, participants will talk about ethical choices surrounding a hypothetical case of a third life-saving surgery for a 23-year-old man with a long history of intravenous substance abuse. 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 trent-center@duke.edu or call (919) 668-9000.
