Panel Discussion on World Religions Day at Baylor College of Medicine
Dr./Sh. Basem Hamid, Alejandro Chaoul, and Stuart Nelson will conduct a panel discussion at Baylor College of Medicine as part of the celebration of World Religions Day. Originating in 1950, the purpose of World Religion Day is to highlight the idea that the spiritual principles underlying the world's religions are harmonious, and that religions play a significant role in unifying humanity. In the context of healthcare, this is an opportunity to consider the shared ways in which religious traditions approach health, healing, and the body, and also to better understand where they diverge. BCM students and staff will be invited to this lunchtime panel discussion to highlight perspectives on the relationship between health and religious identity, belief, and practice.
