Bioethics and Mass Media

In today’s global village of rapid communication, it is all the more urgent that bioethics news be disseminated properly.

glassesCommunication ought to be based on truth and respect for the human person. It is therefore necessary to deepen our understanding on the theories and practice of communication, as they relate to anthropology, sociology, and contemporary culture. This project will also explore how bioethics’ issues are expressed and in turn shape public opinion in television, the press, and the Internet.

A Biomedi@ group has been created at the Regina Apostolorum.

The Annual Bioethics Summer Course of 2010 was on Bioethics and Communication: A Challenge for the Third Millenium.
