An Evening with Robert Klitzman, MD, author of Designing Babies: How Technology is Changing the Ways We Create Children

Science Writers in New York invites you to spend an evening with Robert Klitzman, MD, professor of psychiatry at College of Physicians and Surgeons and director of the Master of Science in Bioethics Program at Columbia University.

Dr. Klitzman will discuss his new book, Designing Babies: How Technology is Changing the Ways We Create Children (Oxford University Press September 2019), with SWINY co-chair David Levine.

Designing Babies examines the ethical, social, and policy concerns surrounding reproductive technology. Based on in-depth interviews with providers and patients, author Dr. Klitzman explores how individuals and couples are facing quandaries of whether, when, and how to use in vitro fertilization and other assisted reproductive technologies (ARTs). As new technologies and possibilities are increasingly realized, potential parents, doctors, and policymakers face complex and critical questions about the use-or possible misuse-of ARTs.

Refreshments will be provided.

Dr. Klitzman's book will be available for purchase at a discount ($20 at the event, $29.95 on Amazon) and he will be available to sign copies. Please support our authors by buying their books.
