Is spiritual support important for hospitalized dying patients? Should doctors pray with their patients? What if the doctor is a different religion, or not religious at all?

We will take a look at the intersection of faith and medicine at the end of life and how to bridge traditions and cultures between medical professionals and their patients. Pastor Corey Kennard, head of the congregation at Amplify Christian Church in Detroit, has spoken widely about the spiritual needs of African Americans at the end of life. Dr. Jessica Zitter, a Jewish Critical Care and Palliative Care physician at Oakland’s Highland Hospital, has spent her career caring for seriously ill patients in the inner city. Facilitated by Amy Tobin, CEO of the Jewish Community Center of the East Bay, this conversation will explore the role of faith and prayer for patients with serious illness in the medical setting and will look at ways physicians can best serve the needs of their patients from different traditions.

Speakers: Corey Kennard, Pastor, Amplify Christian Church, Detroit; Jessica Nutik Zitter, Physician, Highland Hospital, Oakland; Amy Tobin (facilitator), CEO, Jewish Community Center of the East Bay
