Rose Bente Lee Ostapenko Center for Ethics in Medicine and Healthcare
Made possible by the generous gift of Rose Bente Lee Ostapenko, the center is dedicated to investigating the various ethical issues related to healthcare and medicine facing our local and global communities. Our goals are:
- To promote interdisciplinary and collaborative research projects among faculty members at NU.
- To organize events in the form of guest speakers, panel discussions, conferences, and trips to educate and foster discussion of ethical issues in medicine and healthcare for students and the community.
- To serve as a foundation for NU students in the “Ethics in Medicine and Healthcare Program.”
