Hastings Center Welcomes First Sadler Scholars

The Hastings Center is pleased to welcome the inaugural Sadler Scholars, a select group of six doctoral students with research interests relevant to bioethics who are from racial and ethnic communities underrepresented in this field.

“The Sadler Scholars represent the next generation of bioethics: a field that is more diverse, widely interdisciplinary, and prepared to engage directly with how social inequity shapes human health and well-being,” said Hastings Center research scholar Nancy Berlinger, who directs the visiting scholar program and designed this initiative.

Sadler Scholars have opportunities to present and receive critical feedback on their own work in progress from Hastings Center research scholars. They also participate in professional development workshops with Hastings Center editors and invited experts, receiving guidance on writing for publication and on career opportunities in bioethics research and practice.

Stipends for Sadler Scholars are provided by The Blair and Georgia Sadler Fund for Socially Just Health Policy, which aims to cultivate a more diverse set of scholars committed to creating a more equitable world.
