Philosophy in Action

What does a philosophy professor do? Teach classes, yes. Advise students, of course. Research, certainly. But what about discussing ethics with medical professionals at another university? If you are Associate Professor Abraham Schwab, you also sit on local hospital boards, write for local publications, chair Allen County’s ethics board, and give talks about your specialty (ethics) to medical professionals.

To learn more about Schwab’s work, you can read his many columns on issues related to medical ethics and similar topics, here. Or listen to his recent talk, “What Does It Mean to Be a Professional in Medicine and Bioethics,” a webinar he presented at Clarkson University’s Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City.
