Can Science Measure the “Culture of Health”?

  • Cathedral of Learning 501 4200 Fifth Avenue Pittsburgh, PA, 15213 United States (map)

PGH Christian Studies is sponsoring this panel discussion as part of Pitt’s “Year of Healthy U.” Speakers on the panel include Dr. Tamara Dubowitz (RAND Corp.), Dr. Tyler Wanderweele (Harvard), Dr. Jeffery Bishop (St. Louis University), and Dr. Grant Martsolf (University of Pittsburgh). The health policy community has recently come to realize that health is about more than just the body. Now immense resources are being directed toward research on “the culture of health.” But how well can empirical research evaluate factors such as spirituality, ethics, friendship, love, and happiness? Come hear all sides of the debate from experts at Harvard’s School of Public Health, St. Louis University’s Center for Health Care Ethics, the RAND Foundation, and Pitt’s School of Nursing.
