NNMC: Ethics of Care in Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Relief

On May 4th, the National Naval Medical Center (NNMC) in Bethesda, Maryland will hold its Annual Ethics Symposium. The event is free and open to all who may be interested.

The topic this year will center upon the Ethics of Care in Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Relief. This is most timely given the service and leadership Navy Medicine just provided via the USNS Comfort in Haiti. US Navy Medicine has an outstanding tradition of leading and inspiring all women and men to be a “Global Force for the Good.” This event will highlight that tradition, and will inspire all of us to do what we can anywhere and everywhere to serve the needs of others.

Please feel free to forward this invitation to others who may be interested. Please note: For non-Department of Defense attendees, registration is required so that their names can be given to the NNMC front gate for access to the property. Again, the flyer has the registration POC info.

For registration and other information contact LCDR Jason Higginson (NNMC Healthcare Ethics Committee Chair) at Jason.Higginson@med.navy.mil  or via 301 319 4594.
