COVID Ethics Series

The COVID Ethics Series relies on the idea that challenging ethical issues are best addressed by many folks, from diverse backgrounds, practically reasoning together. Each week Professor Bryan Pilkington is joined by a panel of leading experts from medicine, nursing, and the health sciences, as well as political theorists, economists, ethicists, philosophers and lawyers for a conversation about ethical issues which have arisen or intensified due to the pandemic. The COVID Ethics Series is generously co-sponsored by IHS Student Life and IHS Library.
