Honoring Steven Miles, MD
The Center for Bioethics, along with colleagues, mentees, students, family, friends and staff, gathered to celebrate Dr. Steven Miles’ 40+ year career as a physician and bioethicist as he embarks upon retirement in June 2017.
Dr. Miles leaves an extensive and impressive career in medicine and bioethics at the University of Minnesota. Informed by his personal imperative of taking bioethics beyond academia, Dr. Miles delved into a vast number of topics, all focused on improving conditions for the greater good of humanity including issues that intersect with human rights, public policy, public health, and education.
