Johns Hopkins Berman Institute To Host Guest Lecture on Bioethics Advocacy on Monday, Sept. 24

The Johns Hopkins Berman Institute is hosting a guest lecture by Dr. Jonathan Moreno, David and Lyn Silfen University Professor, Department of Medical Ethics and Health Policy, University of Pennsylvania, at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health on Monday, Sept. 24.

Dr. Moreno will discuss this cultural and historical progression, noting the origins of the field as deeply associated with the international system of law and human rights developed after World War II.​

Modern bioethics is marked by the canonical ethical standard of self-determination, which distinguishes it from traditional medical ethics. As such, it has earmarks of a social reform movement and, in some cases, an advocacy program.
