Concierge Medicine: Fair or Foul?

This Saturday Canisius College hosts the Bioethics Group of Western New York’s first in a series of talks examining emerging ethical issues in medicine.

Please join the discussion on this model of medical practice in Grupp Fireside Lounge from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. this Saturday, October 27. Drs. Ron Santasiero and Katie Grimm will present and discussion will follow. Registration begins at 8:00 a.m.

Registration (and breakfast!) will be free for medical, allied health professions and health and human services students. Please rsvp to Prof. Nancy Rourke of the Religious Studies Department (, 888-2460) if you wish to attend.
