Dr. Jonathan D. Moreno

To complete this current semester of book talks by Penn faculty and clinicians, on the afternoon of November 21st at 3:00 PM, we’re very excited to be hosting another Penn Integrates Knowledge (PIK) professorDr. Jonathan D. Moreno, the David and Lyn Silfen University Professor at the University of Pennsylvania, Professor of Medical Ethics and Health Policy, History and Sociology of Science, and Philosophy. Dr. Moreno will be talking about the book he recently co-authored with University of Pennsylvania President Amy Gutmann, Everybody wants to go to heaven but nobody wants to die: bioethics and the transformation of health care in America, a critically acclaimed survey of the history of bioethics in America and how the field has influenced policy and politicization of health care in this nation over the past half-Century.

If you’ve seen Dr. Moreno speak, you know that he is engaging, entertaining, and incredibly erudite. Our book talks have been informal and conversational, which makes Dr. Moreno the perfect presenter to bring the season to an end. Expect a fascinating and wide-ranging talk ranging from policy to philosophy. The book uses well-known, often tragic events such as the lives and deaths of Charlie Gard and Jahi McMath to chart the complexities and paradoxes of American health care and medical ethics.

The location for Dr. Moreno’s talk will be the Biomedical Library.
