If you have a story to share, please email Melanie Elliott, Ethics Chair (firstname.lastname@example.org) the following: 1) The ethical dilemma or situation; 2) How you solved it; and 3) If you would like us to mention your name/organization or wish to remain anonymous.

We welcome your ideas and suggestions as to how to further incorporate ethics into our educational programming and chapter. Contact Melanie if you’d like to be more involved.
