Loyola Student Accepted to Yale Summer Institute in Bioethics

Sumaya Noush

Sumaya Noush, a first-year student at Loyola University Chicago School of Law, was recently chosen to participate in Yale’s Interdisciplinary Center for Bioethics summer program.  This program involves a 2-month-long intensive summer program for American and international undergraduate and graduate students from varying disciplines who are interested in learning more about bioethics. Participants attend a series of lectures and seminars on topics such as care for the dying, bioethics and law, bioethics and media, literature, technology and ethics, public health ethics, and feminist approaches to bioethics; attend a bioethics film/discussion series; participate in field trips to bioethics-related institutions; and present an original paper.  Sumaya is the first student from Loyola to be accepted into this program and will proudly represent the University and Law School this summer.
