Announcing the 2021 Stubing Memorial Lecture

Throughout the coronavirus pandemic, ethical issues have been critical and very real, with bioethics discussed daily in the national news and around dinner tables. In this extraordinary year, Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and Dr. Christine Grady, Chief of the Department of Bioethics at the National Institutes of Health Clinical Center, will join us for the 2021 William C. Stubing Memorial Lecture. The pair will engage in a moderated conversation guided by Dr. Sanjay Gupta, CNN’s Chief Medical Correspondent. The Lecture, Confronting the Public Health and Ethical Challenges of COVID-19, will be held as a live webinar on November 1, at 6:30 pm ET.

We hope you will join us for an illuminating conversation with this trio of national icons as they reflect on the challenges underscored by the COVID-19 pandemic and what these challenges can teach us about ethically moving forward in public health, medicine, and science.

Confronting the Public Health and Ethical Challenges of COVID-19 is free and registration is open to all.

The NYU School of Global Public Health and its Center for Bioethics are partnering with The Greenwall Foundation to sponsor this year’s Lecture.
