Conference On Medicine and Religion : Re-Enchanting Medicine
2017 marks the centennial of Max Weber’s lecture, “Science as Vocation,” and this year’s Conference on Medicine and Religion (CMR) considers Weber’s thesis with respect to contemporary health care. What it would look like for re-enrichment today? How can practitioners, patients and religious communities break through the intellectualization, rationalization and disenchantment in an era of evidence-based medicine, quality metrics, and electronic medical records?
Join others in Houston where health care practitioners, scholars, religious leaders, and students will consider these questions in light of different religious traditions, including Judaism, Christianity, Islam and Buddhism.
Early Registration is now open through February 24, 2017
Conference Sponsors include: Institute for Spirituality and Health at the Texas Medical Center; Program on Medicine and Religion, University of Chicago; Initiative on Health, Religion and Spirituality, Harvard University; Trent Center for Bioethics, Humanities, and History of Medicine, and Initiative on Theology, Medicine and Culture, Duke University; Albert Gnaegi Center for Health Care Ethics, Saint Louis University; and the Ohio State University Center for Bioethics & Medical Humanities.
