The National Catholic Bioethics Center (NCBC) responds to ethical challenges in health care and the life sciences by promoting Catholic moral and social teachings. Through education, guidance, and public policy, it promotes human dignity and supports health care professionals.
The NCBC promotes the teachings of the Church through various educational efforts. It instructs clergy, religious, and laity through workshops, seminars, and certification programs. The NCBC publishes two journals, Ethics and Medics and The NCBC Quarterly. Additionally, it engages in public policy initiatives related to ethical issues by issuing position papers.
