Welcome to KYHEC!

The Kentucky Healthcare Ethics Consortium enjoyed a very successful inaugural year and is now in its second year!  KYHEC is an initiative of the University of Kentucky Program for Bioethics and its mission is to establish a community of ethics colleagues across the state.  KYHEC offers opportunities to network with ethics colleagues, discuss challenging cases, and access educational offerings and training materials.  With a wide range of offerings that include an annual conference, regional workshops, listserv participation, webinars, online resources and more, KYHEC strives to be accessible for members across the state and to provide information and resources that meet the needs of our members.

Member Institutions
