Thank You For Attending Our Summer Symposium!

The deVeber Institute recently hosted our summer symposium entitled "Medical Ethics in an Age of Reproductive Decisions and Medical Aid in Dying". The event was a great success and over 115 people attended.  The day was filled with thoughtful discussion and thorough presentations of new emerging research.

We had a total of four guest speakers as well as five student presentations from our summer interns.

Our first presenter was Dr. Kathy Pfaff. Her presentation was entitled Medical Aid in Dying: A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing. She spoke about the fundamental definition of dignity and compassion, the clinical improvements experienced from palliative care and medical ethics in light of Bill C-14.
