AMERICA’S OBSESSION:
HAVING IT ALL WITHOUT PAYING THE PRICE
Dr. Moreno will share themes from his upcoming book, “Everybody Wants to Go to Heaven But Nobody Wants to Die: Bioethics and the Transformation of Health Care in America (Pub Date: August 27, 2019). The book explores the inevitable moral choices that accompany tremendous medical progress. From aid in dying, organ transplants and vaccinations to doctor-patient relationships, gene editing and healthcare reform, there are no simple answers to the choices these issues raise. “Ethics in general addresses the conflict between our aspirations and what we are prepared to do to achieve them,” says Dr. Moreno. “Change begins by insisting on more informed leadership.” Dr. Moreno is the co-author of “Everybody Wants to Go to Heaven But Nobody Wants to Die: Bioethics and the Transformation of Health Care in America (Pub Date: August 27, 2019)
