Structure and Stakeholders
Initially, the Institute has been established with an Executive Director and a Bioethics Scholar.
Together we will gather Advisers from the Greater Charlotte area with expertise in medicine, law, technology, education, social work, religious leaders, and civic leaders. As the Institute grows and is endowed we will bring nationally recognized scholars, business leaders, and community activists to the Charlotte area to speak to and interact with those we serve.
The model for the Institute is based on the Hastings Center, an independent, nonpartisan, nonprofit research institute established in 1969 (www.thehastingscenter.org/)
