The American Association for Bioethics (AAB) was formed in the fall of 1994. It promoted the exchange of ideas among bioethics scholars; enhanced the clinical activities of bioethicists, encouraged discussion and research in bioethics and encouraged teaching and development of new scholars and participants in the field.

In early 1998, the AAB merged with the Society for Bioethics Consultation and the Society for Health and Human Values to form the American Society for Bioethics and Humanities.


The Archives of the AAB were transferred to the Moody Medical Library in early 2001. The collection consists of one archival box that occupies approximately 5 inches of shelf space.
