This paper is dedicated to the memory of Malcolm Kushner (1926–2015), whose quiet encouragement and wise counsel assisted generations of bioethicists in understanding the complexity of human behavior.

In this series of essays, The Road Less Traveled, noted bioethicists share their stories and the personal experiences that prompted them to pursue the field. These memoirs are less professional chronologies and more descriptions of the seminal touchstone events and turning points that led—often unexpectedly—to their career path.
