HudsonAlpha bioethicists present at American Society for Bioethics and Humanities meeting

HudsonAlpha bioethicists Kim Strong, PhD and Tom May, PhD presented at the 2016 American Society for Bioethics and Humanities meeting last Friday.

The American Society for Bioethics and Humanities (ASBH) was founded in January 1998 through the consolidation of three existing associations in the field: the Society for Health and Human Values (SHHV), the Society for Bioethics Consultation (SBC), and the American Association of Bioethics (AAB).

May and Strong presented during the End of Life Care paper session where they discussed Ancestry, Identity and Genetic Testing for Adopted Persons.

May will present at the American Public Health Association meeting Oct. 29- Nov. 2 on how genomics will change traditional approaches to health management. You can learn more about this topic in the following paper: The Ethics of Population Health Management: Collapsing the Traditional Boundary Between Patient Care and Public Health.
