Paging God: Religion in the Halls of Medicine
Sunday, February 24
RSVP HERE (not required, but helps us hold a seat for you)
Join us for a short presentation and gathering in celebration of the release of Wendy Cadge’s groundbreaking study about the role of religion in healthcare today. Associate Professor of Sociology at Brandeis University, Cadge’s unprecedented work shifts attention from questions about what role religion should play a role in modern medicine, towards what role it already does.
Praise For Paging God:
“From the opening narrative about a Buddhist monk near death to the concluding story about a parent seeking prayer, Paging God is rich with insights about the challenges facing health practitioners as America becomes more religiously and ethnically diverse… Wendy Cadge has written an impressive study that should be read by everyone interested in understanding how religious diversity is reshaping our society.” ~ Robert Wuthnow, author of America and the Challenges of Diversity
