Dear Colleagues –
I’m writing to call your attention to the upcoming Ruth Grandin Symposium, a biennial forum intended to explore the relationship between healthcare and spirituality.
This year’s symposium (the 6th Grandin Symposium) will be held on Wednesday evening, October 16th from 5:00-7:00pm at Lankenau Medical Center.
This year’s topic is particularly timely: The Journey through Addiction: Spirituality as a Source of Strength and Compassion. The event will highlight the important role of health care workers from all disciplines in caring for those suffering from addiction. Clergy from different faiths, social workers, nurses, physicians, addiction specialists, law enforcement and individuals personally impacted by addiction will come together to discuss the connection between spirituality and recovery.
This promises to be a very special event. Learn more and register to attend here.
