Conference for doctors and healthcare providers caring for refugees, elderly, terminally ill or with chronic psychiatric disorders:
Come and be inspired by Father Damien of Molokai.

Saint-Luke Conference Nov 16th 2024

In his encyclical Fratelli Tuti, Pope Francis invites us to go to the periphery. Certain groups of patients are not always receiving the right care.

What more can we do, as doctors and healthcare providers, for refugees, the isolated elderly, the terminally ill and patients with chronic psychiatric disorders?

Holy Father Damiaan De Veuster, reading his book, in Molokai.

“Caring for People at the Edges of our Healthcare System”

Let us take inspiration from the Holy Father Damiaan De Veuster, who was fully committed to the leprosy patients of Molokai, and ask his intercession for our medical practice.
