Aaron Levine, associate professor in the Georgia Institute of Technology School of Public Policy was recently elected to the board of the American Society of Bioethics and Humanities (ASBH). During a three-year term, Levine is serving as a director at-large.
ASBH is the primary academic organization in the U.S. for scholars and practitioners working in clinical ethics, research ethics, and the health humanities. It aims to promote the exchange of ideas and foster multi-disciplinary, inter-disciplinary, and inter-professional scholarship in these fields.
Levine said that the ASBH role connects his teaching on biomedical ethics at both the undergraduate and graduate level with his research on ethical and policy issues associated with emerging biomedical technologies and health care.
"This is an excellent opportunity to raise the profile of Georgia Tech Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts and in this area,” he said.
The School of Public Policy is a unit for Georgia Tech’s Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts.
