Catholic Moral Theology and HIV Prevention Subject of Lecture

“Catholic Moral Theology and HIV Prevention: Sworn Enemies or Potential Partners? A Historical Look at the Developing Conversation” will be the subject of a Friday, Nov. 30, lecture at Creighton University.

Jon Fuller, S.J., M.D., associate professor of medicine at Boston University, will deliver the lecture as part of the William M. Clark, M.D., Visiting Professorship. The noon-1 p.m. talk is free to the public. Registration begins at 11:30 a.m. at Creighton University Medical Center’s Morrison Seminar Room, 601 N. 30th St.

As a Jesuit priest and a physician, Fuller has explored for many years the ethical, theological and pastoral-care issues surrounding HIV and AIDS. He is a staff physician at Boston Medical Center’s Center for HIV/AIDS Care and Research. Fuller co-edited “Catholic Ethicists on HIV/AIDS Prevention, published in 2000; the book received a Book of the Year award from Alpha Sigma Nu, the national Jesuit Honor Society.

The lecture is named after Dr. Clark, who served as Creighton associate chief of family medicine from 1978 until his death in 1991. Creighton University’s School of Medicine, Department of Family Medicine, Family Medicine Interest Group, and the Continuing Medical Education Division are sponsoring the event. Continuing medical education credit is available for physicians.
