What Can We Learn From Charlie Gard?
|Thursday, November 30, 2017
|5:00 - 6:00 PM
|Charlie Gard was born with a rare genetic disorder and lived for less than a year, but his life and death attracted worldwide attention when his doctors and his parents disagreed about his best interests. His parents wanted to bring him from London to the United States to try an unproven intervention, but the hospital caring for him sought legal authorization for palliative care and withdrawal of life-prolonging treatment. Join the Wake Forest University Center for Bioethics, Health & Society for a panel discussion about the role of medical science in society. A reception will follow.
