Southern & Central Illinois Advisory Group for Ethics

SAGE was founded on a commitment to providing equal access to high-quality services and professional Ethics experts without the high cost of starting and maintaining a dedicated Ethics Center. Thus, the purpose of SAGE is to advance the ethical practice of medicine through the development of a community ethics network. This ethics network:

  • Provides speakers, educational program, and educational resources to healthcare facilities and providers.
  • Advances the development of institutional ethics committees through education and guided self-assessment.
  • Promotes networking between individuals and institutions by sharing information and resources among members.
  • Encourages activities to strengthen and widen interest and expertise in clinical ethics.
  • Assists the achievement of organizational goals by creating real-life examples of Ethical Leadership.

SAGE Regional Network

SAGE’s professional Clinical Ethics consultants work with all levels of healthcare providers and healthcare agencies in Central and Southern Illinois.
