Connecting Body and Soul

For the past decade, Tracy A. Balboni has been conducting research to illuminate how spirituality affects the patient experience, especially at the end of life. That work, published in leading medical journals, is now a centerpiece of Harvard’s interfaculty Initiative on Health, Religion, and Spirituality. The effort, launched in 2013, aims to promote rigorous research, provide training for students and medical residents, and spark collaborations across and beyond the University at the intersection of religion, medicine, and public health.
