Assistant Professor, Department of Bioethics, Faculty of Medicine, Dalhousie University

Marika Warren is an Assistant Professor in the Dalhousie Department of Bioethics and Network Ethicist for the Nova Scotia Health Ethics Network, although the opinions expressed here are entirely her own.

Marika has a longstanding interest in the intersection of values and science and in how we translate values into practice, alongside a strong commitment to social justice. Marika’s current work focuses on developing innovative ways to ensure that ethical commitments and values are reflected in healthcare practice, supporting providers in the challenging work of closing gaps that sometimes arise between how we believe we should behave and how we actually do act.

Areas of particular interest include addressing stigma, promoting equity, and supporting decision making. Current projects include work on a public health ethics framework, policy regarding human milk sharing, medical assistance in dying, and simulating ethics consultations.
