McGill Programs in Whole Person Care is excited to announce that the special Bicentennial edition of our fourth International Congress will be held virtually from 21 to 24 October, 2021.
Given the current global situation, we have chosen to move our event from an in-person conference to a virtual one. Join us from anywhere in the world, from the comfort of your home for an inspirational program and impactful networking opportunities. This year, the conference theme is Congruent Responses to a World in Crisis: Courage, Compassion, Community, and the Heart of the Healer.
Today, we live in a world full of unprecedented issues and crises, a world that is constantly changing and is very unpredictable. Difficult and scary as this can be, we must be prepared to see, listen, feel, and respond to the suffering of others and ourselves with respect, love, and understanding. When fear and uncertainty is coming to us from all sides, we feel called to offer solutions rooted in compassion, courage, and community.
Join us for four days of interactive workshops, plenary lectures with exciting and provocative speakers, best-practice sharing and unparalleled international professional networking opportunities. On behalf of the Executive Committee, we would like to warmly invite you to participate in the 4th International Congress on Whole Person Care, and we look forward to virtually welcoming you in October.
