Join ARC for a Bea panel discussion

ARC is pleased to present a panel discussion on BEA, on May 12, 2013 in the Factory Studio Theatre.

BEA raises difficult ethical and moral issues, such as patient’s rights and assisted suicide. The panel will provide a forum for our audience to explore and engage with these issues, with the help of our distinguished panelists.

Panelists include:

  • Professor Joan Gilmour (Osgoode Hall Law School, York University) teaches Health Law, Legal Governance of Health Care, Torts, and Disability and the Law at Osgoode Hall. She is past Director of Osgoode’s Institute for Feminist Legal Studies, and past Associate and Acting Director of York University’s Centre for Health Studies.
  • Dr. Sandy Buchman (Mount Sinai Hospital) is a Palliative Care Physician and Education Lead at the Temmy Latner Centre for Palliative Care at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto. He currently serves as Provincial Clinical Lead, Quality Improvement & Primary Care Engagement in Palliative Care at Cancer Care Ontario. He is the immediate Past President of the College of Family Physicians of Canada and a Past President of the Ontario College of Family Physicians.
  • Ken Gallinger (Toronto Star) spent much of his career as a minister in the United Church of Canada. During his ministry, Ken filled many positions within the denomination, and was twice nominated for Moderator (the elected head on the national church). For seven seasons, Ken co-hosted Spirit Connection, a weekly journal of faith and ethics on Vision TV. He has been a regular contributor for over 30 years to The Observer, and other periodicals. After leaving the church in 2012, Ken continues his work as Ethics columnist for the Toronto Star.

The panel will begin immediately following the 2pm Sunday matinee performance of BEA on May 12, 2013 (approximately 4pm). Anyone who has seen BEA is invited to attend (admission will be granted with a valid ticket stub). However, seating priority will be given to those who have attended the May 12 performance.

We hope you will join us for an afternoon of conversation and insight.
