Listen to podcast Episode 10 ‘The ethical dilemmas presented by COVID-19’

Headshot of Steve Gimbel

Tune into a new episode of Gettysburg College’s podcast, Conversations Beneath the Cupola. In this episode, podcast host President Iuliano is joined by Philosophy Prof. Steve Gimbel. Together, they discuss the many ethical dilemmas presented by COVID-19, particularly for physicians who are facing difficult decisions under conditions of great uncertainty.

“Hopefully we do come out of this understanding the interconnectedness we have—that you can’t go to the store without somebody ringing up your groceries. That person is putting themselves at risk for you. You are connected to them,” Gimbel said in the podcast episode.

The episode concludes with an anecdotal “Slice of Life” told from the president’s perspective. Iuliano shines light on the College’s Get Acquainted Day (GAD), which took place virtually on April 18-19. Admissions used creative thinking to show off, through new means, the many opportunities to thrive at Gettysburg College that admitted students have. Alums and current students also rallied together across the College's social media channels to share their GAD stories and welcome the Class of 2024.
