RELIGION IN HEALTHCARE - STUDENT SYMPOSIUM
REGISTER NOW


The Healthcare Innovation Program (HIP) and Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) Open School Emory Chapter are pleased to announce the 5th annual Student Symposium!  The symposium will be held on Tuesday, March 19, 2019, 6:00-7:30 pm in the Rollins School of Public Health, CNR Auditorium.
 

The symposium will address how our healthcare system engages with religion, both positively and negatively. While much of the healthcare system has its roots in religious practice, the place of religion in healthcare has become increasingly unclear. At the same time, researchers (including many here at Emory) have highlighted the importance of religion as a social determinant of health. Addressing the linkages between religion and our modern healthcare system, then, offers new opportunities to improve healthcare.
