About Me

I am a bioethics scholar and teacher whose research interests include ethical issues in emergency medicine, advance directives, care for patients nearing the end of life, and the allocation of health care. I chair the Clinical Ethics Committee at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center and I'm a core faculty member in the Wake Forest University Bioethics Graduate Program. My recent book Ethics and Health Care: An Introduction was published in 2016 by Cambridge University Press. I also serve on the Ethics Committee of the American College of Emergency Physicians and the Ethical and Judicial Affairs Committee of the North Carolina Medical Society.
