The Duke Center for Spirituality, Theology, and Health is based in the Center for Aging at Duke and provides opportunities for Duke University professors, graduate students, undergraduates, chaplains, medical students, and residents to conduct multi-disciplinary studies on religion and health. We are interested in working with clergy, theologians, and other scientists to learn more about the relationship between religion and health, as well as exploring the medical and theological implications of that relationship. We frequently work with researchers outside of Duke who are doing research in this area, as well as provide consultation to state and federal government agencies. Center faculty members often give presentations to outside groups.
