Join me on Saturday, October 21 at 12:45p in Empire C for "Effecting Change, Impacting Policy."

In this tumultuous political climate, ethicists’ expertise can be invaluable in educating policymakers about the implications of potential changes to law and policy. Ethicists with legal experience and knowledge can help effect important changes at the national and local level – whether by drafting amicus briefs, submitting comments on proposed administrative regulations, or lobbying legislators. This panel will bring together experts at the intersection of law and ethics who have been successful in impacting policy on issues relevant to the ASBH community.

The panel includes:

Kirstin Matthews, Rice University's Institute Baker Institute for Public Policy
Thaddeus Pope, Mitchell Hamline School of Law
Carrie Zoubul, C.A. Goldberg, PLLC

Also join me on Friday, October 20 at 10:45a for the "Top 10 Legal Developments in Bioethics" with Art Derse, Paul Lombardo, and Valerie Gutmann Koch.

The American system relies to a surprising extent on foreign medical graduates, most of whom are citizens of other countries when they arrive.
