“The Ethics of Organ Transplantation” at University of St. Thomas (Houston)

The Center for Thomistic Studies at the University of St. Thomas, Houston, Texas, will be sponsoring a medical ethics conference addressing the topic of organ transplantation, on March 27-29, 2009. Here’s a scrape from the conference’s PDF file. [1]

The Ethics of Organ Transplantation, an interdisciplinary conference on medical and philosophical issues surrounding organ transplantation, will bring together experts from a variety of fields, such as philosophy, theology, and medicine. The conference seeks a coherent vision that promotes healing united with a respect for the dignity of each individual.
