Event CoverMercy College of Health Sciences’ Center for Human Flourishing will host a discussion featuring inaugural Research Fellow Dr. Charles Camosy on Wednesday, April 6, at 6 p.m. at the Catholic Pastoral Center in downtown Des Moines. Individuals are encouraged to participate in-person or online. Register to attend virtually.

Camosy’s work focuses on biomedical ethics, with the confluence of ethics, theology, and politics in the public sphere informing his thought. His discussion, The Abandoned Generation: Pandemic Failures in Elder Care will illuminate the modern challenges facing healthcare delivery in light of the pandemic.

Camosy is an Associate Professor of Theological and Social Ethics at Fordham University, where he has taught since finishing his PhD in theology at the University of Notre Dame in 2008. Camosy is an award-winning author of multiple books, including the most recent Losing Our Dignity and Resisting Throwaway Culture. His co-authored book Bioethics for Nurses: A Christian Moral Vision prominently features the role the Sisters of Mercy played in the creation of the modern profession.

The Center for Human Flourishing’s vision is to advance human flourishing through the study, pursuit, and production of practical wisdom in order to achieve sensible, real-world outcomes which promote the dignity, integrity, self-determination, and personal growth for the individuals and communities we serve.
