The Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine is offering its annual Medical-Spirituality Conference, "The Soul Work of Living and Dying," on Thursday, April 19, 8:45 a.m. to 4:45 p.m., at the Sinclair Conference Center, Building 12 (301 W. Fourth Street, Dayton, OH 45402). The conference is for practicing physicians and others in the medical and religious community.

While modern medicine and contemporary technologies have extended lives, health care providers still struggle with the question of living well. For physicians and patients grappling with questions of what it means to live fully in the midst of chronic or life-threatening illness, the quest for answers is worthwhile, challenging and deeply personal.

This year's tenth anniversary Medical-Spirituality Conference is an invitation to explore these issues with acclaimed authors and speakers, Lucy Kalanithi, M.D., and Steven Z. Pantilat, M.D. Both encourage health care providers to contemplate suffering and life's meaning in the face of difficult diagnosis with awe, purpose and humility.

They will offer their perspectives and conference participants will engage in thoughtful conversation while exploring questions surrounding important life issues.

To register for the conference, go to medicine.wright.edu/med-spirit. For more information, contact Nicki Crellin at nicki.crellin@wright.edu or (937) 245-7634.

The conference is sponsored by the Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine, Ohio's Hospice of Dayton and Premier Health.
