Announcing the 2015 Survive and Thrive Conference
A Conference & Arts Festival for the Medical Humanities
2015 Survive & Thrive Conference
October 22-23, 2015 - 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 2015
We have changed the name of the Survive and Thrive Conference to The Survive and Thrive Experience.
Since 2012, the conference has blended 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.
Request for Proposals
Call for proposals for the Survive and Thrive Experience to be held at SCSU in St. Cloud, MN from October 21 to 23. This is our fourth year of the conference, fifth year if we include the pilot conference, and marks an important part in our development as a conference and as a movement to save and improve lives.
Rather than offer a series of informational sessions and presentations, we intend this year to integrate performance, scholarship, and artist/survivor interactions. The structure of the experience and the rational for the experience is available at the blog on our web site: www.survivethrive.net. Please read the blog in considering your submissions.
