Medicine & Spirituality – A Talk by Dr. Arman Sabet
The Gold Coast Baha’i Community in Australia hosts information evenings that seek to explore a Baha’i perspective on topics that relate to the life of society. In this talk given on 29 November, 2018, Dr. Arman Sabet explores the complex but vital interaction between spirituality and health, wellbeing and the science of medicine.
Dr. Arman Sabet, MD, completed his residency and EMG fellowship at Duke University in 2000 and 2001 respectively. He now works at the Gold Coast University Hospital, where he provides a mixture of inpatient and outpatient care as a senior staff specialist. He is a member of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians and an Associate Professor of Neurology at Griffith University.
