Vatican Conference to Focus on Mind-Body-Soul Connection to Health Care

Dr. Anthony Fauci, Chelsea Clinton, and the CEOs of Pharmaceutical  manufacturers Moderna and Pfizer, which created leading COVID-19 vaccines, will be among the featured speakers at a healthcare conference next month co-hosted by the Vatican’s Pontifical Council for Culture. 

Entitled “Exploring the Mind, Body & Soul. How Innovation and Novel Delivery Systems Improve Human Health,” the Vatican says the May 6-8 “Unite to Prevent” online conference will bring together doctors, scientists, religious leaders, philanthropists and others “to discuss the latest breakthroughs in medicine, healthcare delivery and prevention, as well as the human implications and cultural impact of technological advances.”

Co-hosted by the Cura Foundation, an organization that aims to improve global health and quality of life by streamlining health care delivery and reducing human suffering, the Vatican said in a statement that the conference will also promote a roundtable discussion on “Bridging Science and Faith to explore “the relationship of religion and spirituality to health and wellbeing, including the relationship between mind, body and soul.” 

The discussion will deal with the “deeper meaning of human existence and seek areas of convergence between the humanities and the natural sciences,” the statement read.

Pope Francis will address the conference in a video message at its conclusion, and priests, pastoral health care workers and students from Pontifical and Catholic Universities worldwide are invited to take part.
