Drawing from scenarios in the book Mountains Beyond Mountains: The Quest of Dr. Paul Farmer, a Man Who Would Cure the World, participants will apply Eight Key Questions for ethical reasoning to complicated situations and also see how the environmental, economic, and social aspects of the situation are often inextricably connected. Please email to register for the event. Space is limited.
