Forced Organ Harvesting from Prisoners of Conscience:

October 26, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

A Workshop on the Intersection of Medical Advocacy and Medical Ethics

Are there any professional ethical obligations for health care professionals to take responsibility for their colleagues’ complicity, given the cultural and political differences that influence their work? What can and should health care professionals across the globe who are motivated to advocate on this issue do, either as individuals or collectively within their medical specialties?
The purpose of this workshop is to host an interdisciplinary discussion of these questions for medical trainees and clinicians.

David Matas, International Human Rights Lawyer
Torsten Trey, MD, PhD, Executive Director of Doctors Against Forced Organ Harvesting Winston Liu, Falun Gong Practitioner
