Panel discussions are effective ways to explore a topic in a controlled environment. Organizing a panel discussion is similar to organizing any other speaking event (read about how to do that here).
- Invite 3 to 4 pro-life doctors to discuss a topic of medical relevance, for example: “How to counsel an abortion-minded patient” or “Why abortion is never medically necessary.”
- Panel discussions can also involve pitting multiple professionals with differing viewpoints against each other.
- Ideally this event should be held on campus, in the evening, accompanied by a free dinner for those attending.
- Arrange the room with tables/chairs and have the lecturers at the head table where they will make their presentations.
- Feel free to eat during the lecture to save time.
- This event should last a total of about 60 minutes, including lecture and Q&A.
- Invite CMDA & CMA student groups to increase attendance and recruit for your group.
