Welcome and Announcements
CHAIRMAN PELLEGRINO: Good morning.
Welcome. Let the record show that Dr. Daniel Davis, the Executive
Director of the President's Council on Bioethics, is present
as the Official Government Representative.
I also want to welcome Dan who was appointed recently to the directorship
and he is my boss now, officially.
As tractable as I ought to be, he'll have trouble, no doubt,
ordering me around, but Dan, we're happy to have you. Dan,
you have his curriculum vitae. He's come to us from Georgetown
with extensive administrative experience, not only in academia,
but in government and otherwise. He has his doctorate degree in
philosophy, and his concentration is in philosophy of medicine.
Dan, thank you for joining us.
DR. DAVIS: Thank you.
