Join the National Conversation on Transforming Medicine

Discussion Series: The Medical Profession Through the Lens of Human Flourishing

Participate in a national conversation where healthcare professionals can boldly ask fundamental questions about the profession of medicine, discuss its role in advancing human flourishing and consider how to address factors at the individual, community or societal level that can pose barriers to flourishing.

This series is presented by the Kern National Network for Caring and Character in Medicine through an investment from the Kern Family Trust and Kern Family Foundation.
