Rev. Charles Bouchard, OP presents “Spirituality, Health Care Reform, and the Happy Death” on September 14 at 7 pm.
Advances in medical technology have brought many blessings, but they have also led to soaring costs and a health care system that sometimes seems beyond our control, especially for the frail and elderly. How can we use technology effectively while honoring death as a spiritual event and part of our journey back to God? How can the traditional Catholic notion of the happy death influence debates about health care reform? A discussion of these topics will be led by Rev. Charles Bouchard, Senior Director of Theology and Ethics at the Catholic Health Association of the United States.
Location: Martin Theater, Dominican University, 7900 W Division St. River Forest, IL 60305
