Annual Rev. Jerry Shave Clergy Day

At Upstate, our mission is to alleviate human suffering through treatment, research and teaching.

Past Clergy Day topics include:

  • Coloring Outside the Lines: Spirituality and Children
  • Ethics at the Bedside For Clergy
  • Suicide Alertness: Training for Effective Ministry

Our 2014 Clergy Day was held at Upstate's Cancer Center and focused on integrating spirituality with traditional medicine in cancer care.

This webpage will be updated when Upstate's 2015 Clergy Day is scheduled.

If you have any questions, please call Department of Spiritual Care at 315 464-4687.
