One event on April 27, 2017 at 10:00am
INSTRUCTOR: Edward F. (Ned) Brooks
People are basically good, but you’d never know it from the evening news. Hit and runs. Mass murders. Medicare fraud. Cheating athletes. Lying politicians. But, there are countless less obvious issues that surround us all the time. Each of them has ethical implications. Join us for a fascinating and highly interactive session, where we’ll discuss some of these topics; benefit from ours and others’ perspectives, and have fun doing it!
