Although modern medicine has extended the human’s life expectancy, it is still finite. What are some of the questions to consider as we age? How do different religious groups consider medical treatments at the end-of-life? Join us as Dr. Peggy Determeyer, PhD, MDiv, MBA, BCC, McGee Fellow and Director of HHCI’s Community Bioethics and Aging Center, reviews some of the key religious perspectives of medicine and bodily finitude.
