Student Outreach

Western societies need to initiate discussions in our communities about ethical issues raised by contemporary medicine. We need creative interdisciplinary thinkers to design ways of reaching out to get people thinking and talking in their communities about how developments in medicine impact them, their values, and the people they care about.

Julian Willard, a member of the Community Ethics Committee, is Chair of the Interdisciplinary Studies Department at The Rivers School in Weston MA. Ethics students at Rivers are challenged to engage meaningfully in their communities as part of their formal education. What follows are works produced by Rivers students - we hope they inspire discussion about these and other ethical issues that matter to our society.
