Global Health Challenges: The Life-Cycle of Religious Violence

March 5, 2018
12:00 PM – 1:00 PM

Serota, Mollie Rogers Auditorium
Long Island, NY

NYIT Center for Global Health and the New York Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine Educational Consortium (NYCOMEC) invite you to a special Grand Rounds presentation by Conrad Fischer, M.D., associate professor of Medicine, Physiology and Pharmacology at Touro College of Medicine. Fischer will share his work on examining the ideology and motivations that drive violence in the name of religion and God. His proposed hypothesis is that this thanatophilia is a new form of illness that should be examined with the same rational analysis that we would a public health epidemic. This illness derives from a mutation in the genome of civilization that has led to a cancer in the body of society. Fischer will present on what has led to long dormant introns of scripture that have been unexpressed for a thousand years to become manifest at the beginning of the 21st century.
