AbstractThe article discusses a bioethics program that trains teachers to help students confront ethical challenges. Sponsored by the Northwest Association for Biomedical Research (NWABR) and the University of Washington, the program aims to teach teachers to help students about ethical issues inside and outside the classroom, including genetic testing, stem cell research and genetically modified foods. Another program, the free database maintained by the Kennedy Institute of Ethics at Georgetown University, also helps teachers incorporate ethics into their class discussions.
