Research Ethics Grand Rounds on dependency to be Thursday, March 21

"Dependency as a Virtue: The Interdependency of Health and Human Flourishing" will be the Research Ethics Grand Rounds topic at noon on Thursday, March 21.

The location will be room 241 at the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center, One Magnolia Circle Building.

Keith Meador, M.D., MPH, professor of Psychiatry and Preventive Medicine and director of the Center for Biomedical Ethics and Society, will present. His lecture will explore how "dependency" is frequently interpreted and distorted in our culture.

Within this context, Meador will examine how practices of caring are formed and interpreted by various communities, including faith communities, in service to nurturing human health.

Lunch will be provided. For planning purposes, please register by Wednesday, March 20.
