Applied Bioethics Magazine is a new, digital publication that takes on today's bioethical issues and helps you explore and understand their meaning for your life.
The magazine's philosophy exists at the intersection of classical philosophy, Catholic theology, and healthcare. It's supported by some of history's greatest thinkers, from the Ancient Greeks to the modern era. The objective is to break down complex bioethical issues into bite-sized pieces. In doing so, bioethics becomes more approachable and understandable.
Health sciences and biomedical technologies are advancing at a rapid clip. As healthcare utilization increases and our understanding of medicine and the hard sciences advances, we're in a dilemma. We face more bioethical questions than any previous generation, but we're unprepared to meet these challenges. We're living longer and have access to technologies that promise to alleviate human suffering. Understanding the basic tenants of bioethics is not just valuable; it's essential.
Amid this scientific progress, society is experiencing an intellectual break. Distrust of traditional institutions and processes risks unmooring science from any structure constraining it. Science is capable of doing great good for society. Unfortunately, it's also capable of inflicting great harm and misery. Bioethics is the guardrails that keep science focused on the good.

The human person reaches their fullest potential through education. Bioethics is a developing field of study, but one whose importance grows with every discovery. Let Applied Bioethics Magazine help you be prepared to take on the bioethical challenges in your life and the lives of those you love.
