Good morning, everybody. I'm Amy Gutmann and I'm President of the University of Pennsylvania and Chair of the Presidential Commission for the study of Bioethical Issues.
On behalf of myself and my Vice Chair Jim Wagner, who is President of Emory University, I would like to welcome you to Day 1 of our fourth meeting. Please note the presence of our designated federal officer, our Commission Executive Director Valerie Bonham.
Val, would you stand up so people can recognize you? Great.
