The class is provided by the Jewish Learning Institute and is offered at the Barbara and David Gibbs Recreation and Wellness Center in classroom 160B. Classes are held on Tuesdays from 7-8:30 p.m. for six weeks, starting Oct. 26. Each of the six classes will cover a different issue of ethics in modern medicine, including patient autonomy, assisted reproduction, patient confidentiality, mental illnesses, organ donation and medical experimentation.
