How To Heal: Integrated Healing?

a New Medical Humanities Series

This new series in Medical Humanities is a monthly luncheon seminar that invites students across the healthcare community to engage with veteran practitioners and faculty on concrete, clinical issues that prompt more fundamental questions: what does it mean to heal? how does one measure wellness? how do doctors and nurses determine when their responsibility for making someone well is complete?  How is the flourishing of patient and caregiver related — or not?

Integral Healing?
To what extent should clinicians be concerned with
both body and spirit?
Featuring
Dr. Brian Wojciechowski
President, Catholic Medical Association of Philadelphia
