Many participants in David Gerber’s “Transplant Ethics” CEU found his presentation interesting and useful on both a personal and professional level. The presentation presented four different ethical dilemmas around organ transplantation—including financial issues, eligibility, social compliance, and the ethical issues of hope. Participants found the group discussion particularly insightful. Gerber also offers a unique perspective on this issue as a transplant recipient himself.

Gerber’s professional area of interest is medical ethics and organ/tissue donation specifically. He has more than 25 years in the medical field. He currently serves as a chaplain with Avalon Hospice in the Nashville area. He is the co-founder and chief blogger of Wellspring Transplant Support blog: http://wellspringtransplantsupport.com/.
