About the Program

How do theoretical ethical imperatives translate into the real world of business?  Professors and students can debate the moral nuances and revel in the gray areas, but businesspeople have to make black and white decisions in real time about whether and how to act.  Hear from an in-house corporate attorney about the ethical dilemmas faced by professionals in the global health care marketplace, and about the strategies used to address those dilemmas.

Join us on May 9th as we host special guest Harman A. Grossman, Assistant General Counsel for Johnson & Johnson for a real world ethics discussion.  The program will be preceded by a light lunch at noon.
