Online Courses on “Health and Religion” Began November 4 Run thru June 30, 2022

ATHENS – A series of online courses with the central theme “Health and Religion” began on November 4 and runs until June 30, 2022.

The course is organized by the Prolepsis Institute in collaboration with the Hellenic Society of Medical Students of Greece and is under the auspices of the Medical School of Athens.

The courses are supervised and coordinated by the Emeritus Professor of Surgery at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens and Lecturer in Surgery at Harvard Medical School Dimitrios Linos.

Professors of Medicine and other schools and universities including Harvard, Johns Hopkins, Yale, Duke, the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens and well-known Greek doctors, theologians, and writers are participating.

The first lecture took place on November 4 with the Emeritus Professor of Philosophy Christos Yannaras as speaker discussing “Religion and health in the perspective of the ecclesiastical experience.”

The purpose of the free courses offered is to inform medical students, health officials, but also anyone else interested in the therapeutic role that religion can play in the health of all of us. This is an issue that has been of particular concern to the scientific community and the wider international community in recent years.

More information, including the detailed program of presentations and speakers, is available online: www.healthandreligion.gr.

In addition, anyone interested can easily log in live to watch and ask questions at the end of each presentation. All the courses will also be available on YouTube.

The Radio Station of the Church of Greece and The National Herald are communication sponsors of the courses.
