Hosted by The Park Ridge Center for the Study of Health, Faith, and Ethics.
Do you know how increased non-European immigration and a growing interest in alternative spiritual practices are impacting health care in the Chicago area? This conference provides a firsthand look at America's new religious diversity, and focuses on Buddhism's influence on local health care practices.
Americas religious landscape has changed dramatically in recent decades. This conference will focus specifically on the growth of Buddhism and the impact this change is having on health care in and around Chicago.
Metropolitan Chicago is now home to an estimated 150,000 Buddhists served by nearly 70 temples and meditation centers. Buddhist patients and health care professionals are found throughout the region. The conference will explore the ethical and practical implications of this Buddhist presence.
