Dr. Gerald Winslow, Director of the Center for Christian Bioethics and Professor of Ethical Studies at Loma Linda University Health, recently contributed a chapter to a multi-religious volume on NICU care published by Oxford University Press in August 2019. Titled Religion and Ethics in the Neonatal Care Unit, the book highlights what “major religious traditions teach about the care of the newborn or how these teachings may bear on parents’ decisions.” Dr. Winslow authored the chapter, “Seventh-day Adventists and Care for the Newborn,” which highlights how Adventist convictions have shaped Adventist neonatal care practices. Topics explored include beliefs in divine creation, human wholeness, freedom of conscience, spiritual commitment to health, and worldwide mission.
