Then, on Sunday, November 15, we will hold concurrent keynotes: Dr. Ellen Wright Clayton, MD, JD Rosalind E. Franklin Professor of Genetics and Health Policy and director of the Center for Biomedical Ethics and Society at Vanderbilt University; and Dan Ariely, PhD, James B. Duke Professor of Behavioral Economics at Duke University. If you haven’t yet registered for the conference, you can pick which keynote you would like to attend during the registration process. If you have registered, please e-mail us to let us know which keynote you plan to attend.
