2019 Islamic Bioethics Symposium

Exploring the Ethical Dimensions of Mental, Reproductive and Sexual Health


October 21, 2019
Gordon Center for Integrative Sciences – The University of Chicago

Symposium Overview

The Initiative on Islam and Medicine at the University of Chicago is a leading forum for discourse and scholarship at the intersection of medicine and religion. On October 21, 2019, we are partnering with the Fifth Islam and Bioethics International Conference (following Haifa University 2001, Penn State University 2006, Ankara Turkey 2010, and Coimbra Portugal 2015) to explore the normative and ethical dimensions of Muslim mental, reproductive and sexual health. This joint, one-day symposium will complement our landmark three-day conference focused on Muslim health disparities, “Advancing Muslim American Health Priorities (A-MAP).” Our 2019 Islamic Bioethics Symposium is preceded by a number of conferences and workshops that II&M has hosted over the years.
