Youth Ethics Summit: Vaccination Ethics and Policy
October 12, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
While vaccinations have been responsible for many global public health successes, they continue to raise ethical controversies. The Northwest Association for Biomedical Research (NWABR) invites educators and high school students to explore and discuss the unique challenges of vaccine research and policy making.
The Youth Ethics Summit will bring together students from across the Puget Sound region to learn about topics related to ethics, medicine, and biomedical research that are of special relevance to young people in both local and global contexts. This year’s summit will focus on vaccination bioethics and will feature researchers, clinicians and bioethicists leading discussions. The Summit provides an opportunity for students from different schools to meet and to participate in discussions and presentations about ethics in science issues.
Registration opens August 1.
