Innovative Bioethics Forum was founded by Anne Zimmerman in 2021 with Mary Beth Morrissey and Bruce Jennings. Originally partnered with the Collaborative for Palliative Care, the forum now operates independently. The forum’s mission is to ensure that those affected by scientific discovery are properly at the forefront of policy governing its use, availability, and ubiquity. We engage in critical thinking and commonsense approaches to bioethics, health justice, and broad ethical dilemmas with consideration of barriers or impediments to health and wellbeing.

For information about the forum, or to apply for membership, please email Anne Zimmerman at
