Our June speaker, Nathan Michael, is an administrative director in a large religious health system in Cincinnati. He will explain why religion is so prevalent in healthcare and go over some of the religious rules that restrict certain types of care as well as how religious ideology prevents healthcare providers from giving certain types of care.
Nathan's presentation will include personal stories related to religion and healthcare, how the two intertwine on the topics of fertility, abortion, stem cell research, and how we can keep humanism in healthcare.
Prior to his healthcare career, Nathan served on the board a local religious continuing care retirement community. He also served on the board of the Child Friendly Faith Project, an organization dedicated to educating on and preventing religious child maltreatment.
