A Conversation with Dr. Peter Dysert and Dr. Jim Denison

Tuesday, September 19, 2017 | 7:00 PM | Pilgrim Chapel | DBU Main Campus

Genetic medicine has been called "the greatest revolution since Leonardo." Every dimension of medical care is being transformed, and the implications will change your experience greatly. Join us on September 19 as two leaders in the field of genetic medicine and Christian ethics discuss the genetic revolution and how it affects your personal medical care and public faith.

Dr. Peter Dysert serves as Chief of the Department of Pathology and Director of the Pathology Residency Program at Baylor University Medical Center. He is also the Managing Partner of Pathologist Biomedical. Dr. Jim Denison is the co-founder and CEO of Denison Forum on Truth and Culture, Resident Scholar for Ethics with Baylor Scott & White Health, and Senior Fellow at DBU's Institute for Global Engagement.

The purpose of the Institute for Global Engagement (IGE) is to be a catalyst for moral and spiritual renewal by engaging contemporary issues with a Christian worldview and equipping individuals to utilize their influence for the glory of God. The IGE Leadership Lecture Series first began in the spring of 2015 and has welcomed cultural influencers including Eric Metaxas, Jim Broaddus, Dale Petroskey, and Keith and Kristyn Getty.

Tickets for Leadership Lecture Series are $5.00.
