The Conference cumulates in the presentation of the MacLean Center Prize in Clinical Ethics and Health Outcomes, a $50,000 award, which is the largest prize in bioethics and clinical ethics. This year’s prize was awarded to Laura Roberts, MD, MA, Chair of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Stanford University School of Medicine.
