COLLABORATION BETWEEN SCIENCE AND FAITH LEADERS
Recognizing that their patients/congregants often face concerns that overlap science and faith, health professionals and faith leaders will come together in this session to provide insights on how the two academies can collaborate better to provide information to each other on scientific advancements and the faith perspectives underlying the concerns, and ultimately serve their patients/congregants even better. In addition, the conversations will explore what science and faith leaders can do together to advance the socioeconomic and healthcare agenda in Pakistan and around the world.

A diversity of science and faith leaders from different backgrounds have been invited for this discussion (updates to be posted regularly)
