The Converging Roads medical ethics conference is coming to Baton Rouge on November 2, 2019. Co-presented by the St. John Paul II Foundation, the Diocese of Baton Rouge, Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center, and Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady University, this conference is an incredible way for health care professionals and the general public to learn about practicing medicine under a Catholic ethos.
The theme of the conference is Catholic Social Doctrine in Medicine with presentations on assisted suicide, gender dysphoria, the future of Catholic health care and more. Continuing education credits for healthcare professionals will be offered, but the conference is open to anyone, regardless of profession. Formation and education on these issues are so important whether they are encountered at work, at home, or in ministry.
