THIS YEAR’S TOPIC

What is a disability, anyway?

In an era of ever-growing pharmaceutical enhancement, what counts as intellectually disabled, and why would that matter? How does the way we define disability (and normalcy) impact the just distribution of resources in society — and the way society treats those who happen to fall outside the norm? How are foundational concepts in ethics like dignity or autonomy complicated by reflection on the many ways we are dependent on others in the course of any “normal” human lifespan?

Each year, the Kennedy Institute of Ethics convenes a wide-ranging and personal conversation among expert panelists, preceded and informed by student work on the same topic. We can’t wait to share this year’s conversation, complicating the very notion of “disability.” Join us this February, in-person at Georgetown University, or digitally via live-stream, as our team goes deep on this thought-provoking and deeply important issue.

Did you know? This year’s topic celebrates one of the issues at the heart of the KIE story: disability.

The Institute was founded in 1971 with support from the Rose and Joseph Kennedy Foundation, inspired in large part by the Foundation’s ongoing commitment to advancing the rights of the disabled. This year’s topic celebrates that founding vision of a world where the voices of the powerless are made powerful through thoughtful reflection and theory-driven advocacy, and it dives deep into some of the most complicated and interesting questions in disability ethics today.

VIRTUAL PRESENTATIONS: 9am 

Pediatric Grand Rounds at Golisano Children’s Hospital at the University of Rochester and Rochester Regional Hospital.

VIRTUAL PRESENTATION:12pm

FRAME Workshop Featuring Cerebral Palsy, Cystic Fibrosis, Fragile X syndrome

On behalf of the pediatric residents at the University of Rochester, the chief residents have invited Rick Guidotti to Rochester as the Richard Ham Memorial Lecturer of 2020. This lectureship was established in memory of Richard Ham, a former pediatric resident at the University of Rochester (1963-1965). Dr. Ham became ill the year following his residency with Hodgkin’s disease and died in 1967 during his postdoctoral fellowship. He is remembered as a warm, selfless, caring colleague, devoted learner, and inspiring teacher, and this lectureship is evidence of the high esteem in which he was held by his fellow house officers. Each year, the Ham Memorial speaker is chosen by the pediatric chief residents.
