Café Bioethics is an intellectually accessible forum where individuals, who do not necessarily have a background in bioethics, medicine, or law, can participate in laid-back philosophical discussion. Events are welcome to anyone looking to participate in respectful discussion or curious listening!
Currently, we are focusing on our publications and our podcast - but if you have an idea for a presentation, please let us know!
