CBHS Funding

The Center for Bioethics, Health and Society supports bioethics education, scholarship, and community engagement through a variety of programs. The CBHS Fund helps to make these activities possible.

The CBHS Fund helps us to:

  • Enrich the student experience by supporting innovative programming, such as Dining Dilemmas, which encourage students interested in healthcare careers to explore ethical decision making in healthcare. The Fund also helps to support student travel to bioethics conferences. Wake Forest students have presented their bioethics research at regional and national conferences.
  • Offer workshops and speakers to enhance the intellectual community at Wake Forest University.
  • Support interdisciplinary faculty and student research across the university.
  • Engage policy-makers and the community in exploring bioethics.


Bioethics Graduate Program

The Bioethics Graduate Program provides an educational opportunity for current and future professionals and others throughout the country, including health care providers, researchers in biomedicine and the life sciences, lawyers, and professionals in religion, health and research administration, and the biotechnology industry. Our program also prepares students in pre-health, pre-law, and humanities programs who will continue onto professional schools and/or doctoral programs.

The Bioethics Graduate Program Fund is for general use of program expenses that benefit the students in the program, primarily for student scholarships.
