The 2016 Conference invites health care practitioners, scholars, religious community leaders, and students to address questions associated with the theme, “Approaching the Sacred: Science, Health, and Practices of Care,” by relating its questions to religious traditions and practices. We welcome an array of disciplinary perspectives, from empirical research to scholarship in the humanities to stories of clinical practice.
We invite abstracts for 75-minute panel and workshop sessions, 15-minute paper presentations (with 10 minutes discussion), and posters. We also invite student participation in an essay contest.
The Call for Abstracts is now closed. Registration for the Conference will open in the next few weeks.
The 2015 Conference on Medicine and Religion took place in Cambridge, MA, from March 6-8, 2015.
