A Conference & Arts Festival
for the Medical Humanities

2013 Survive & Thrive Conference
October 16-18, 2013
St. Cloud, Minnesota

We are dedicated to improving the odds of survival and living well through education. We are committed to engendering and facilitating restorative therapies for the sick and injured, their caretakers, families, and medical professionals. We welcome all who are dedicated to saving lives and the aesthetic experience in healing regardless of the kind of illness or injury.

The Survive & Thrive Conference 2013

Like 2012, the conference will blend medicine and the arts in sessions dedicated to learning and sharing knowledge together in support of survivors, health care professionals, medical educators, and educators from the Fine Arts and Humanities.  The conference promotes the interests and projects of Medical Humanities and Narrative Medicine.  Our unique approach includes both EMS and Medical Technology as essential elements in our content planning as well as the involvement of survivors of Sudden Cardiac Arrest, Brain Injury, and Cancer.

This year the conference will be focusing on four areas of interest:

  • Post Traumatic Stress - PTS(D)
  • Brain, Heart, and Mind
  • Testimony, Witness, and Advocacy
  • Careers in Medical Humanities
