On behalf of myself and our vice chair, Jim Wagner, president of Emory University, I welcome you to our 23rd meeting.
SESSION 2: MEMBER DISCUSSION
DR. GUTMANN: Actually, I was going to ask if, Christine, did you have a comment you wanted to make relevant because you could take a minute to ‑‑ yeah. Put your ‑‑ and then we'll get ‑‑ yeah.
DR. GRADY: I was going to make a point that actually Laura made at the end before she left and that was that, you know, in terms of creating safe space for students to have these kinds of discussions, we first have to care about helping the teachers being prepared and that that's not a trivial task ‑‑
DR. GUTMANN: Uh‑huh.
SESSION 5: ROUNDTABLE DISCUSSION
DR. GUTMANN: Terrific. Thank you all for rejoining us. I want you to think about but I'm going to start with Nelson's question I want you each to give us one piece of advice. And I mean, really, one. Don't make the one I have my one piece of advice is, I have ten pieces of advice. One thing that you would like to see addressed in our report having to do with what we could recommend to encourage or enable our society to improve the quality of deliberation or and/or education around issues of health science, bioethical issues.

SESSION 2: FLUENCY IN SCIENCE AND ETHICS
DR. GUTMANN: We are now turning to the topic of fluency in science and ethics, and I have the pleasure, the distinct pleasure of introducing our very own Executive Director, Lisa M. Lee, to begin our panel.

SESSION 1: FACILITATING PUBLIC DIALOGUE ABOUT BIOETHICS
DR. GUTMANN: And with that, we are going to continue this discussion in other ways with our, really, expert and wonderful presenters.
