Welcome to BioethiCanada!

This blog started in 2007, about bioethics (biomedical ethics). Back then, I’d often hear: “What’s a blob?” Big data & genetic medicine were just starting out, so I later added a privacy section to the blog.

Then in 2016 I was diagnosed with a rare disease. My immediate reaction was to start searching for information about it. I also connected on-line with other people struggling with rare diseases & chronic pain; many of them asked me to share the information I was able to find. Because of my bioethics background, I have access to some resources that aren’t available to the public. So a new section of the blog was born…

My sister re-registered the URL & set up this new blog site for me – Thanks Val!
