Webinar on Ethics for Laboratories and Beyond

The Association of Public Health Laboratories (APHL) is sponsoring a webinar, Ethical Vigilance: Lessons for Environmental Laboratories and Beyond, on October 1, 2018, from 2:00 to 3:30 EDT.  It is open to other state staff and will explore ethical issues beyond the laboratory.

Each year, the Association of Public Health Laboratories (APHL) provides a comprehensive environmental laboratory ethics webinar. How do you ensure you don’t misreport QC samples, time travel or improperly calibrate instruments? These are important questions to answer, but what about the broader, philosophical aspects of ethics? How can you build a foundation to support ethical decision-making in your life both inside and outside the laboratory?

Ethics keynote speaker Rashmi Airan will explore these questions and more. Ms. Airan was raised in a cultured, educated family, committed to community service and doing the right things, but then she took a wrong turn. Her recovery from that mistake is a fascinating story.

Kicked off by a brief primer on environmental laboratory ethics by Shane Olund of Minnesota Public Health Laboratory, this webinar will tell a story of early success, ethical misses and personal redemption that speaks to every person and professional. Rashmi Airan will inspire you to commit to ethics.
