Here, There and Everywhere

April 23, 1998

Dr. Glenn McGee gives new meaning to the word "productive." Not only does he teach at the Ivy League's University of Pennsylvania, where he's an associate director of the Center for Bioethics, but he also supplies commentary about bioethical issues like cloning or assisted suicide for ABC News, CNN Headline News, or National Public Radio and writes for about five hours a day.

In fact, he serves as senior news consultant on bioethics for MSNBC, and his 1997 book, The Perfect Baby: A Pragmatic Approach to Genetics was selected as a "must read" by the New York Times Book Review.

Sound busy? Well, there's plenty more. McGee wears several other hats as well ¡¡ senior research fellow at the Kennedy Institute for Ethics at Georgetown University, associate of the Ethics Institute at Dartmouth College, faculty member for the Wharton School of Business, and consultant to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Federal Cloning Commission.

The 1990 graduate credits Baylor with giving him a broad intellectual foundation and instilling in him a drive to accomplish great things. "I'm prone to overcommitting myself, but right now science isn't waiting for me to catch up!" he says.

"The main theme of my career has been trying to make the tough ethical issues in medicine intelligible and solvable for the average family."
