The Center for Practical Bioethics is hosting a symposium and forum on the ethics of disasters on December 7 at the Kansas City Public Library-Plaza Branch. The symposium features presentations by medical professionals who were on the scene during the Hyatt Hotel disaster in Kansas City, Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans, and the tornado that ripped through Joplin, Missouri in May 2011.
Continuing education credits are available for the symposium.
At 6 pm that evening, a public forum is scheduled with Anna Pou, MD, who spent nearly a week in Memorial Hospital in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina hit in 2005. Registration for the public forum is $15.
