Here’s What Past Conference Participants Say:

A Physician and Vice President for Medical Affairs at major health system:
“The majority of Americans think their spiritual care is as important as their medical care when they are ill. That means we should be as careful and thorough in spiritual care as we are in medical care. This conference sets the field in the right direction.”

A Nurse Practitioner:
“My nurse research partner and I found it to be a forum for like-minded health care professionals to form a community of inquiry with learning and mutual support as we strive to improve the caring for the human spirit.”

A Chaplain:
“I’ve been a chaplain for 16 years, and this was the best conference I’ve attended.”
