10th Annual Pediatric Bioethics Conference

The Annual Pediatric Bioethics Conference provides insight to what health care professionals are doing to cope with ethical challenges that arise in pediatric health care.

Wolfson Children’s Hospital in partnership with The Florida Bioethics Network will host the 10th Annual Pediatrics Bioethics Conference on Friday, November 3, 2017, at University Center, University of North Florida, Jacksonville, Florida.

As the Annual Pediatric Bioethics Conference approaches its tenth anniversary, it remains one of the largest collaborative community bioethics conference in the country dedicating to addressing the most taxing issues facing the health care industry ranging from discussions on ethical issues in genetics and genetic testing to involving children in end-of-life conversations. The 2017 Conference will cultivate a pragmatic understanding of best practices in the field of pediatric bioethics and health information technology, development of standard practices in pediatrics, genetics in the hospital, and pediatric bioethics collaboration.
