Session Overview

Amidst a rapidly changing healthcare environment characterized by increasing economic pressures, time has become a commodity in increasingly short supply. This compression of time has significant ramifications for professional well-being and the care of patients. Join us for this important program, which considers the role of clergy in redeeming time as a necessary component for fostering patient care and promoting a sense of vocation in the healthcare professions.
