The Fellowship of St. James will have a display table at The Center for Bioethics & Human Dignity's annual conference Beyond Therapy: Exploring Enhancement and Human Futures from Thursday, July 15 to Saturday, July 17, at Trinity International University, 2065 Half Day Rd, Deerfield, Ilinois 60015.
The CBHD brochure describes the Center and this year's conference:
"The Center for Bioethics & Human Dignity is and an international center of Trinity International University whose purpose is to bring Christian perspectives to bear on contemporary bioethical challenges facing individuals, families, communities, and society by exploring the nexus of biomedicine, biotechnology, and our common humanity."
"A decade into the biotech century, scientific discoveries and technological innovations are transforming the nature of biomedicine and revolutionizing the expectations for biotechnology. A new medicine that moves beyond therapy to enhancement presents both opportunites and perils. Beyond Therapy: Exploring Enhancement and Human Futures probes these possiblities. What do these imply for the future of our individual and common humanity?" A diverse schedule of speakers will address this question.
If you are attending the conference, please stop by the FSJ table. We always enjoy meeting our supporters and friends. This is also a great opportunity to learn more about the ministry of the Fellowship of St. James, subscribe to or renew subscriptions to Touchstone and Salvo magazines, and to tell how we are doing.
See you at the conference!
