Making Space: Ethics and Neurodiversity
Details coming soon
Arizona Bioethics Network is hosting its 11th Annual Conference Spetember 17, 2022. The presenters will be examining "Making Space: Ethics and Neurodiversity." This includes a historical look at the place of neurodiversity in medicine, the ethics in the diagnosis, treatment, search for genetic cause, and how the search for treatment may make parents or patients vulnerable to ineffective treatments. Some of the questions will be what is the lived experience for a person who is neurodiverse? What do they need from their medical provider. More details to come. We are hopeful that this conference can be a hybrid event-both in-person and some participating online, depending on the status of the pandemic in September. This conference is held in lieu of our September webinar.
