ABN 9th Annual Conference

Ethical and Legal Challenges in a Pandemic

Full Brochure is available here.


The COVID-19 pandemic has identified ethical and legal challenges that arise when a health care system is stretched to its limits in providing care to those affected by the pandemic. Health professionals, attorneys, social workers, and the public have faced these challenges. ABN's 9th Annual conference, a virtual conference held over two mornings, featured invited professionals who have been working tirelessly to address these questions.
