We are looking for students from various different disciplines and schools to provide their perspectives and insights on religion in healthcare. This is a great opportunity for student speakers to get paired with a faculty mentor to receive hands-on coaching to make a presentation to an audience of fellow students and faculty/staff.
The symposium will address how our healthcare system engages with religion, both positively and negatively. While much of the healthcare system (such as nursing and hospitals) 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. Potential speakers could show how hospitals, medical schools, and other health services integrate religion, or fail to do so. They could address patient religion, chaplains, Catholic hospitals, how doctors are taught to address religion, how innovation has historically crowded out religion in healthcare, among other topics. This symposium topic requires a highly multidisciplinary set of scholars, and so researchers from all areas of the university are highly encouraged to apply.
