Rationally Speaking to Record Live Episode with Jacob Appel

Rationally Speaking is pleased to present a live episode recording with special guest bioethicist Jacob Appel on Sunday, May 15th at this year's Northeast Conference for Science and Skepticism. What are the big ethical conundrums in medicine? Should we honor patients requests for doctors of a particular ethnicity or gender? What about requests for medically unnecessary surgery such as elective limb amputation? Should we use research that was obtained unethically?

NECSS is an annual conference that will take place at the Fashion Institute of Technology’s Manhattan campus May 12th through 15th. This year will feature past Rationally Speaking guests including David Kyle Johnson, Maria Konnikova, and Steven Novella. Tickets are available now, including a steep discount for students. We hope to see you there!
