About this Event

Human enhancement can be described as the natural, artificial, or technological alteration of the human body in order to enhance physical or mental capabilities. It raises moral, medical, legal, and social concerns about its applications in different fields. Join us for a free webinar on the implications of this technology for Christians across Canada and how it may affect societal perceptions of what it means to be human.

Presenters include Dr. Moira McQueen, moral theologian, University of St. Michael’s College/Canadian Bioethics Institute; Rev. Dr. Tracy Trothen Ethicist, Queen’s University;and Michael Buttrey, doctoral candidate, Christian Ethics, Regis College
