The Ethical Society of St. Louis is delighted to present its annual Ethics in Action Award to Gary Morse, PhD, honoring his work with Places for People. Places for People was founded 47 years ago in response to the then new federal policy of deinstitutionalization, which moved patients living in mental institutions back into the community. Today, Places for People serves more than 2,000 people annually, offering an individualized approach to health and healing. In this special ceremony Dr Brian Vandenberg, Joe Yancey, Bernadette Stapleton, and Dr Morse will speak about his work.
