A more ethical world where individuals and communities have equitable capacity for health.


The Center for Urban Bioethics is committed to eliminating health disparities through education and research.

We conduct interdisciplinary education to give clinicians, researchers and policy makers the tools to advance health equity.

We foster community-driven research to influence structural change that impacts medical care and sectors beyond it.

We design innovative models  to address the most prevalent issues our communities  face.

Social justice and solidarity with our community form the  unifying thread of our work.

About the Center

The Center for Urban Bioethics (CUB) is a unique and innovative model within an academic medical center. At CUB, we organize our work around the principles of urban bioethics, which are: agency, solidarity, and social justice. This is buttressed by our commitment to trauma informed care and to anti-racism. These are the values we teach our students in our Master of Arts in Urban Bioethics (MAUB), the first of its kind in the country.
