An upcoming afternoon ethics conference and evening colloquy will provide two separate opportunities to earn CMEs, CNEs, or CEUs. On Monday, March 25, Grand Valley State University will present “Conscientious Objection in Health Care: You Want Me to Do What?” in collaboration with Spectrum Health. Attend one or both events to earn credit:

West Michigan Health Care Ethics Conference
Monday, March 25 
1:00 to 5:00 p.m. 
Grand Valley State University 
(must be attended in person and will not be live streamed)
$45 registration fee


DeVos Medical Ethics Colloquy
Monday, March 25
6:00 to 8:10 p.m.
Grand Valley State University
Or Lakeland Medical Center (live stream)


Both events will examine the ethical issues surrounding conscientious objection in health care. The conference will feature lecture, discussion, and a case study. The evening colloquy will feature two nationally known speakers who will present their views on the topic and conduct a question and answer session.

To live stream the DeVos Medical Ethics Colloquy on your individual device, register at the DeVos Medical Ethics Colloquy website. Your participation will be monitored and a post-colloquy evaluation sent to you. The evaluation must be completed to receive CMEs.

You also have the option to view and discuss the colloquy as a group at Lakeland Medical Center, where it will be live streamed in the Community Room for CME credit. Randy Miota, Manager of Chaplaincy Services, will host.

This is the only group viewing available for CMEs and CNEs and is possible through a special arrangement with the Office of the Vice Provost for Health, Grand Valley State University. You do not have to register online for the group viewing. You can register when you arrive in the Community Room. Please note that if you do register for individual access, you can change your mind and still attend the group viewing.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Randy Miota at (269) 983-8454 or
