Dear BENO Members and Friends,
I am excited to share with you the outstanding program planned for our 27th Annual Conference. The theme of this conference is “Ethical Decisions at the End of Life”. The next page has summaries of the topics you can choose from. Among the topics covered – the result of collaboration between the planning committee and the Board - are: physician – assisted suicide, palliative sedation, ethical issues in pediatrics and the NICU, conscience rights for caregivers, family communication and Ohio legal update.
Be sure to share this program with your graduate students, interns, residents, fellows and colleagues. There will be time to “network” during the luncheon and throughout the day at the various breakout sessions.
Although it’s possible to register for the conference by mailing a check, I urge you to use a credit card and register online at www.BenoEthics.org.(Remember to REGISTER EARLY!) If you haven’t renewed your membership or joined BENO yet, there is still time for you and/or your institution to become a member and SAVE on conference fees. Information on membership options is available on the website.
Knowing the benefits of BENO’s ongoing educational mission,please join us on Friday, April 28th at OCLC in Columbus.
