Stem Cell Forum at SMUUCh April 26th!!!

Please forward this on to anyone you know:

“Stem Cells: Science, Ethics, Politics, and Faith” is the topic of a forum Thursday, April 26th featuring distinguished panelists Dr. David Albertini, Hall Professor of Molecular Medicine at KU Medical Center, Myra Christopher, President of the Center for Practical Bioethics, and Lori Hutfles of the Kansas Coalition for Lifesaving Cures.

Presented as a community service by the Shawnee Mission Unitarian Universalist Church, panelists will discuss the science, ethics, and politics of stem sell research. “As a church, one of our most important roles is to be a place where the community can come to learn about important issues, become discerning in their thinking, and grow empowered to act on these issues,” said, Rev Thom Belote. Belote will also moderate the forum.

The Shawnee Mission Unitarian Universalist Church, is located at 7725 W. 87th Street (between Metcalf and Antioch) in Overland Park, KS. For more information, call (913) 381-3336.
