This conference is part of the The Montreal Health Ethics Conference Series 2021 : Wellness, health and human flourishing.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the conference series will be presented on Zoom. 
Free : public conference open to all

More than ever, the question of well-being is at the heart of our lives and our concerns, but what role do we really give it in our personal and professional lives and more broadly in our society? Does the dream of a good life guide our health and social choices? Is this ideal accessible to all? How does our health care system respond to different visions of health and wellness? What place does this ideal take in our social, economic and political life? This series of lectures will highlight the perspectives of leading international experts reflecting on ethical issues related to wellness. The series will also focus on a number of critical interventions that will lead us to reflect on an inclusive vision of wellness and health, particularly for Aboriginal peoples, visible minorities and marginalized people.
