SPEAKER TO CONFRONT ETHICAL DILEMMAS IN TALKS OCT. 6
LA CROSSE, Wis—What ethical issues are in your future should you decide to become a doctor, nurse or scientist? What are some of ethical issues we need to confront as we try to communicate in a divided world?
These difficult subjects will be topics of conversation Monday, Oct. 6 in two presentations by Judith Andre, an author, bioethicist, and professor in the Center for Ethics in the Humanities and Life Sciences at Michigan State University.
Andre, author of the recently published Bioethics as Practice, is visiting La Crosse to participate in Viterbo’s dedication ceremony where she is scheduled to be a featured speaker in two different forums.
Andre’s presentation geared to students considering careers in the sciences and healthcare fields, will be held at 4 p.m. in the new distance learning room in the Center for Ethics, Science, and Technology. Later in the evening, at 7:30 p.m., she discusses "Can We Talk? Ethics in a Divided World." That talk will be held in the Fine Arts Center Recital Hall.
Renowned as a speaker, consulting ethicist and professor, Andre’s visit to La Crosse constitutes a reunion of sorts. She is a graduate of Viterbo and she earned her degree cum laude in English Literature in 1967. Later, went on to earn M.A. and doctorate degrees from Michigan State University.
