      Physician-Ethicist to Present Public Lecture at St. Vladimir�s Seminary:
      �How Medicine Is Destroying Pastoral Care�

      [SVOTS Communications] The St. Ambrose Society at St. Vladimir's
      Orthodox Theological Seminary is sponsoring a free and public lecture
      titled "On the Corpse and the Chaplain: How Medicine is Destroying
      Pastoral Care" with Dr. Jeffrey P. Bishop M.D., Ph.D. The lecture will
      be held at 7:30 p.m. on the Feast of the Annunciation, Monday, March 25,
      in the Metropolitan Philip Auditorium of the John G. Rangos Family
      building on the Seminary's campus, Yonkers, NY. The lecture will be
      followed by a light reception hosted by the Society, which is a
      pro-life, student-initiated group.

      An Orthodox Christian, Dr. Bishop teaches medical ethics and philosophy
      at Saint Louis University, where he holds the Tenet Endowed Chair in
      Health Care Ethics and directs the Albert Gnaegi Center for Health Care
      Ethics. His scholarly work has focused on the historical, political, and
      philosophical conditions that underpin contemporary medical and
      scientific practices and theories.

      As an author, Dr. Bishop has published his work in medical,
      philosophical, and theological journals and has addressed a wide array
      of topics from enhancement technologies to clinical ethics consultation
      and medical humanities. His first book, The Anticipatory Corpse:
      Medicine, Power, and the Care of the Dying
      is a philosophical history of the care of the dying, and was published
      by the University of Notre Dame Press.

      In other professional activities, Dr. Bishop also serves on the
      editorial boards of The Journal of Medicine and Philosophy and Christian
      Bioethics, and he is an assistant editor of the "Philosophy and
      Medicine" series published by Springer.

      The lecture will also be streamed live on the St Ambrose Society website
