When it comes to health and healing, patients of different faiths have particular needs for caregiver relationship, nutrition and medication, end-of-life choices, and family involvement, as well as distinct worldviews of what it means to be healthy. In this series of evening seminars, we explore these themes through the teachings, texts, and cultural traditions of five world religions: Islam, Buddhism, Judaism, Christianity and Hinduism.
