There is a group challenging the status quo and seeking answers to the most profound of questions: can spirituality add years to your life? Can people continue to change and grow in substantial ways as they are dying? How do you cope with a traumatic, life-threatening experience? Once, the consensus within the healthcare community was that spirituality and religion had little to do with clinical research, education or medical care. But Doctor David Larson, a pioneer in the healthcare industry, believes something very different. For him, the question was never whether spirituality and healthcare should be integrated, but rather, how the two had always been connected. In 1991, Dr. Larson began the National Institute of Health Research. Today, it is called the International Center for the Integration of Health and Spirituality. Its mission? To generate research and answers to some of life's deepest questions.
