The Retreat is unique among bioethics meetings in that experts in medicine, philosophy, law, and health policy are invited from around the world to present their current research projects. Sessions are informal with audience discussion an integral part of the presentations. Every year the Retreat’s success grows in expanding and strengthening an international community of bioethicists.
