Anthony Fauci, Chelsea Clinton, and Deepak Chopra are among the featured speakers at a Vatican conference being held in May on the interplay of mind, body, and soul in healthcare.
The Vatican announced the conference organized by the Pontifical Council for Culture and the Cura Foundation April 15.
“Exploring the Mind, Body & Soul: How Innovation and Novel Delivery Systems Improve Human Health,” will take place virtually May 6-8.
It will feature the CEOs of large pharmaceutical companies, including Moderna and Pfizer, along with celebrities active in medical philanthropy, global health advocates, policymakers, physicians, and religious leaders.
The Vatican conference’s website lists more than 100 speakers including Kerry Kennedy, Cindy Crawford, John Sculley, Brandon Marshall, Joe Perry of Aerosmith, and Monsignor Dario Edoardo Viganò, prefect emeritus of the Secretariat for Communications.
“Together, they will focus on advances in medical innovation and seek to catalyze the creation of new, interdisciplinary approaches and partnerships for curing disease and improving health, wellbeing and understanding human uniqueness,” the conference website states.
Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi, president of the Pontifical Council for Culture, will co-host the summit with Monsignor Tomasz Trafny and Robin Smith, president of the Cura Foundation and author of “Cells are the New Cure.”
A statement sent out by the Holy See Press Office said that the conference organizers will also promote a roundtable on “Bridging Science and Faith” that will explore “relationship of religion and spirituality to health and wellbeing.”
“The discussion will deal with the deeper meaning of human existence and seek areas of convergence between the humanities and the natural sciences,” it said.
This is the fifth international health conference organized by the Pontifical Council for Culture and the Cura Foundation. The fourth conference, “United to Cure,” hosted at the Vatican in 2018 had Katy Perry, Deepak Chopra, and Peter Gabriel as speakers….
[Chelsea Clinton in a 2019 Interview Magazine article said, “I refuse to refer to the anti-choice movement as anything other than anti-choice.”]
The above comes from an April 15 story on the site of the Catholic News Agency.
if PF books Elvis – I’m THERE !
This is far worse than the monkey embryo non-issue.
Chelsea is about as qualified to speak about health as many bishops are to speak about Christ.
Me: “I refuse to refer to the pro-abortion movement as anything other than pro-abortion.”
No more money from me for anything directed to the Vatican.
Oh, joy. “Celebrities” and self-appointed, self-righteous “Activists”. Heaven forbid that there should be any input from actual…whadayacallem….El Pueblo, living their lives out in the trenches. This is an embarassement.
Can we all come down to earth here? Health and healthcare are major issues in our country and in the world. We have one of the least effective healthcare systems of all industrialized nations of the world. As ineffective as it is, it is thousands of times better than what is available to about half the people in the world. One doesn’t have to be Catholic to attend and speak at a Vatican conference on the subject. Maybe a kernel of new thoughts will come out of the conference that will help improve the world.
Bob what are their qualifications ? why not Demi Lavato, Cardi B , a Kardashian ? a kernel of new thoughts ? no, more insults to the laity.
Ms. Clinton has also served as an Adjunct Assistant Professor at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health since 2012. Ms. Clinton has served as a member of the board of directors of the Clinton Health Access Initiative since September 2011. Ms. Clinton has served as a member of the boards of directors of IAC Holdings, Inc., a media and internet company, since September 2011, Expedia Group, Inc. (formerly Expedia, Inc.), an online travel shopping company, since March 2017 and Nurx Inc., a telemedicine start-up company, since June 2018. In addition to her for-profit affiliations, Ms. Clinton currently serves on the boards of directors of The School of American Ballet, The Africa Center, the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, the Weill Cornell Medical College and Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health, and as Co-Chair of the Advisory Board of the Of Many Institute at New York University. Ms. Clinton holds a B.A. in history from Stanford University, an MPhil and a DPhil in international relations from Oxford University and an M.P.H. from Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health.
So what. The Nazis were impressed with Dr. Mengele’s PhD, the Jews not so much.
And Ms. Clinton believes in killing the least among us. So many titles and degrees does not make a person moral. Let’s see she’s a big supporter of “more from the fit less from the unfit” Planned Parenthood? Is she a racist considering more blacks are aborted and killed in NYC than are born alive and she’s an advocate for this violence. Why not invite an actual abortionist and demonstrate how an actual abortion is performed. It’s considered health care to her isn’t it?
She’s Bill Clinton’s adopted daughter, and that’s the only reason anyone knows who she is or pays attention to her, and the only reason she’s an elite.
She was not adopted. She is the natural daughter of Bill and Hillary Clinton.
God have mercy, Bob One. Before God, young Chelsea is a huge, worldwide abortion promoter to all– a huge child-killer advocate. Just like her mother. Both are sinners in desperate need of Christ’s redemption. Why are you so blind, so unaware of that?? Child-killer advocates, abortion promoters, certainly do not belong at the Vatican.
Someone asked if she was qualified to speak about healthcare. The answer is yes. Is she pro-choice? Yes. Those are two different questions. Just because someone doesn’t agree with our stand on abortion doesn’t mean they are not qualified. The other question, of course, is why the Vatican would invite speakers who are pro-choice and pro-abortion.
Bob One, how on earth could you be so blind? God have mercy. Advocates of child-killing, like young Chelsea Clinton, assisted suicide “death doctors” like Dr. Kevorkian, and Hitler’s Jew-killer, Dr. Mengele, are certainly NOT “qualified” to do anything, except to be silenced by the Healthcare professions and forbidden to ever have anything to do with Healthcare. Abortion, assisted suicide, and genocide, certainly are not “political choices” on a voting ballot. Please, please convert, heart and soul to Christ and His teachings. God have mercy.
Please explain what expertise Chelsea Clinton has in anything, especially anything that would make her a valuable expert in health. What does Joe Perry have to contribute? This conference is a complete joke.
The Vatican has suppressed Masses in St. Peter’s Basilica, suppressed traditional religious orders, refused to issue doctrinal clarifications, refused to halt corruption in the curia, yet it hosts this secular conference?
In spring of 2009, Joe was asked to appear alongside Dr. Rudy Tanzi, Ph.D., professor of Neurology at Harvard University, and U.S. National Institutes of Health Director Dr. Francis Collins M.D., Ph.D., in GQ magazine in a feature called “Rock Stars of Science.” Later that year, Joe accompanied Drs. Tanzi and Collins as they – and the nation’s top scientists – participated in a panel discussion on Capitol Hill in front of congressmen and senators focusing on promoting cures, improving therapies and raising funds for Cancer and Alzheimer’s disease. In 2010, Joe was given the title, by The Geoffrey Beane Foundation, of The Founding Father of the Rock Stars of Science Program (RSOS). Later that year, he appeared with Drs. Tanzi and Collins in GQ’s Men of the Year issue in a spread on the RSOS. In 2013, he was invited to again participate in the 2013-2014 RSOS Campaign and was the first civilian allowed access into Sloan Kettering Memorial Hospital Labs.
Bob One, you forgot– the Vatican is the home of the Roman Catholic Church. The job of our Church is to teach and proclaim Christ’s teachings to the world. And in regards to Catholic healthcare– their job is to guide all Catholics in the medical profession, from a Catholic standpoint. That’s all.
This shows the truth about the Francis pontificate. I’m wondering is Ms. Clinton will be wearing he Satanic Upside down Cross to the event. Will Francis walk in with a wheel barrel of dirt sporting the Pachamama ?
Joe D– yes, maybe they ought to feature Amazonian Pachamama witch doctors, as the latest in Healthcare for the world! Maybe a Pachamama witch doctor could demonstrate his exciting, progressive “Amazonian medical techniques” on the Pope– possibly cure him of his painful sciatica! What a pitiful joke!
Frank is a CINO. He should resign. What is it that any good Catholic could possibly learn to further their faith from Chelsea Cinton and her ilk? BTW, Frank: Do you pray for those Chinese Catholics you helped set up?
The choice is whether to kill someone or not.
Chelsea Clinton?? ……….BWAAAAAAAA !!!!
Sounds like a real important Conference. Can’t wait to hear the summary.
Chelsea, Fauci, chickpock pooptra and big pharma- a new world order fest. All for our own good of course. I hope Nurse Ratchet was invited.
The most boring, unaccomplished person in the world.
