A message from the conference organizers…  check out the many opportunities available to participate:

The National Undergraduate Bioethics Conference (NUBC) will be held on March 26-27, 2010 at the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, Washington.

In response to the increasingly desperate state of health care in America, we are placing a special emphasis on discussing health care reform at this year’s conference. The theme, Bioethics in Obama’s America, reflects the change we’ve already seen and the progress we hope the conference will inspire. All undergraduates are encouraged to get involved by registering to attend, submitting a paper, or participating in the bioethics bowl. The deadline for paper submission is January 25th.
