Special Event: Rebuilding Humpty – A Modern Hypothetical

On Wednesday April 21, join MAD Alumni Ben Richards as he moderates an illustrious panel of Monash alumni, staff and students to explore the intersection between medicine, ethics, the law – and the politics of spin. MAD’s loveliest member, Carmel Wallis, will be part of the panel for this not to be missed event.

  • Dr Sally Cockburn, aka “Dr Feelgood”
  • Professor Julian Savulescu, Uehiro Chair in Practical Ethics, Oxford University
