Dr. George Grant: Spiritual Health is Human Health

Dr. George Grant: Spiritual Health is Human Health

George H. Grant, PhD, is a psychologist and theologian who serves as Executive Director of Spiritual Health for Emory Healthcare in Atlanta, GA. In this role, Dr. Grant oversees the delivery of chaplaincy care throughout the Emory Healthcare system and guides the country’s largest chaplaincy education program. Join us as we discuss Dr. Grant’s pioneering vision for transforming chaplaincy from an ancillary support role to being an essential resource for shoring up the human face of medicine. We discuss the value of recognizing human spiritual needs and aspirations as important elements in health and disease and explore ways in which clinicians can maximize the provision of compassion within the often impersonal world of modern medicine.Featuring:George H.
