Everyone is now able to watch sessions from the Vatican’s wide-ranging interdisciplinary conference, “Exploring the Mind, Body & Soul: How Innovation and Novel Delivery Systems Improve Human Health,” which concluded in early-May. 

Speakers from Catholic and non-Catholic perspectives examined revolutionary health discoveries through the lens of what it means to be human.

On the conference's YouTube channel, you can view observations from: Pope Francis; Cardinal Pietro Parolin, Vatican Secretary of State; and Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi, President of the Pontifical Council for Culture

Topics range from addressing the loneliness epidemic to preventing cancer to music promoting wellness to new approaches to treating substance abuse. All sessions have been packaged into short videos to make them accessible to those who have so many things to do in a day. 

The Vatican hoped these sessions would bridge the gap between science and religion to improve overall human wellbeing.
