For the first time, Benjamin Rush Institute is opening its Friday Keynote Luncheon address with Dr. Raul Artal to the greater OSU, OUHCOM, other local universities, and the greater Columbus community. Raul Artal, MD, FACOG, FACSM will be our luncheon Keynote Speaker on the topic Medical Ethics and the Holocaust: Lessons From the Past.
Friday’s luncheon event is part of BRI’s annual student Leadership Conference and is typically a private event for attending students only. This year’s conference theme is Ethics of the Patient-Doctor Relationship, and we find the questions and dialogue that are part of this discussion to be so vital to influencing positive healthcare policy, that we are opening this up to reach more people.
Dr. Artal, a Holocaust survivor, was born in a Nazi concentration camp. He is the Chairman and Professor Emeritus of the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Women’s Health at Saint Louis University. He is a graduate of Sackler School of Medicine, Tel Aviv University (where BRI has thriving chapter!), the author of over 200 publications and three books and is internationally recognized for his expertise in high risk obstetrics, exercise physiology, and ethical standards in medical practice/research.
Viewpoint: Medicine After the Holocaust
