You may have noticed that we have been on hiatus, while we revamp and reorganize our blog, but I wanted to take this opportunity to give credit where credit is due: One of my heroes, Susan M. Wolf, has been elected to the prestigious Institute of Medicine. She is the McKnight Presidential Professor of Law, Medicine & Public Policy and the Faegre & Benson Professor of Law at U of MN, the founding Director of the Joint Degree Program in Law, Health & the Life Sciences and the founding Chair of the Consortium on Law and Values in Health, Environment & the Life Sciences. She is also a professor of medicine in the University's Medical School and a faculty member in the University's Center for Bioethics. She is also the author of Feminism and Bioethics: Beyond Reproduction, which was one of the first books that I read when I went back to school to get my degree in Biomedical Ethics. She has served as an inspiration to many in the field and she richly deserves this recognition and honor.
A Heartfelt Congratulations and Kudos, Susan!
