The Program on Medicine and Religion promotes and conducts rigorous empirical, historical, theological, ethical, and legal scholarship to enrich our understanding of the meaning of illness and the myriad ways that religion and medicine each respond to the human predicaments of illness, injury, disability, suffering, and death, often in complementary and mutually reinforcing ways.
