The annual Kinsman Bioethics Conference was established in 1989 through an endowment from the late John Kinsman. The conference convenes leaders in ethics from across the state and is hosted by a different city in Oregon each year. The conference is a collaborative partnership, designed to draw on and nurture the strengths of each community it serves. Breakout sessions promote shared learning among medical facilities throughout the region and offer powerful new tools for improvements in health care ethics. Many times, the conference is also a special time for attendees to build collaborative relationships and an opportunity to mentor and support future leaders in the field.
30th Annual Kinsman Bioethics Conference
Regretfully, the 30th Annual Kinsman Bioethics Conference has been canceled due to the current circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 virus in our community and around the world. We are deeply grateful to the planning committee in preparing this year's program and to the faculty from Oregon and the Pacific Northwest.
