The Youth Ethics Summit will bring together students from across the Puget Sound region to  learn about topics related to ethics, medicine, and biomedical research that are of special relevance to  young people in both local and global contexts. This year’s summit will focus on vaccination bioethics and will feature researchers, clinicians and bioethicists leading discussions.  We will also watch a short film, Everybody's Business, about perspectives on childhood vaccination from folks on Vashon Island. The Summit provides an opportunity for students from different schools to meet and to participate in discussions and presentations about ethics in science issues.

Examples of topics we will explore and discuss:

  • Measles 2019
