God and Human Suffering Workshop Oct 2017

What is our shared mission as people of science, ethics, and faith? What is the role of such dialogue in the development of regulations that both promote the alleviation of suffering, and protect the inherent diversity of our planet? Join with clergy, theologians, scientists and bioethicists for presentations and conversations in Salt Lake City next October as we engage in a multi-disciplinary
exploration of these and other questions facing us today. Keynote speakers include: Dana Carroll, Ph.D, University of Utah, Ted Peters, Ph.D., Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary and Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, CA and The Very Rev. Mark Richardson, Ph.D., the Church Divinity School of the Pacific and Graduate Theological Union. Co-Sponsored by the University of Utah, Divisions of Medical Ethics & Humanities and Medical Genetics, Mount Tabor Lutheran Church of Salt Lake and the Episcopal Diocese of Utah
