An Unconventional Career in Bioethics: Letting the Issues Choose You

Carol Levine, director of Families and Health Care Project with the United Hospital Fund and Macarthur “Genius Award” recipient, spoke on her career trajectory and how she came to the bioethics field from a non-traditional path.

Before joining the United Health Fund in 1996, Levine directed the Citizens Commission on AIDS in New York City, and founded The Orphan Project. As a senior staff associate of The Hastings Center, she edited the Hastings Center Report.

Levine is the editor of Always on Call: When Illness Turns Families into Caregivers and, with Thomas H. Murray, co-editor of The Cultures of Caregiving: Conflict and Common Ground Among Families, Health Professionals and Policy Makers.
