Speakers will explore questions such as the role that faith/spirituality can play in the healing or overall well-being of patients, including both physical and mental health; whether or not doctors should discuss these issues with patients; and whether or not there should be training in this area for medical professionals.

Panelists: Mitchell Alegre, Adjunct Professor of Management and Leadership at Niagara University; Dr. Andrew Harbison, Program Director of Osteopathic Family Medicine at Sisters of Charity Hospital; Dr. David Holmes, Clinical Associate Professor of Family Medicine and Director of Global Health Education at Jacobs School of Medicine & Biomedical Science; and Dr. Craig Rivera, Professor of Criminology and Criminal Justice at Niagara University.
