Newman University, in collaboration with the Gerber Institute, will host the conference “Converging Roads: Health Care & Human Dignity” on Saturday, April 22.
The symposium welcomes attendees both online and on-site at Newman’s Dugan Gorges Conference Center in Wichita, Kansas.
Converging Roads offers up to seven hours of continuing education credits for health care professionals, equipping them with the most up-to-date training to practice the highest ethical and medical standards of their profession.
The 2023 conference themes include an introduction to health care ethics; sex, fertility and marriage; beginning of life and end of life issues; dignity and disability; fundamental health care ethics; as well as health care and Catholic social doctrine.
Registration is open and tickets can be purchased at convergingroads.com. Undergraduate, graduate, nursing and medical students can register for Converging Roads at a scholarship admission rate of $15.
The event is one of five regional gatherings currently scheduled throughout the U.S. in 2023. Other cities hosting conferences this spring are Charlotte, North Carolina; Columbus, Ohio; Houston; and Minneapolis.
“In society today we need medical professionals who live the faith, who know the beauty of the faith and [who] carry it out in the care of their patients,” Archbishop Daniel Cardinal DiNardo of Galveston-Houston said in a testimonial. “I encourage all involved to attend this inspiring conference.”
Converging Roads is open to all and is presented in collaboration with St. John Paul II Foundation, the Catholic Diocese of Wichita, St. Gianna Wichita Guild, Ascension Via Christi and the Via Christi Foundation.
