Medical professionals must come to recognize that health encompasses more than just the meaning of life, the definition of life, or what it takes to sustain life physically. The greatest part of us is within our minds, this is what makes us who we are and the health of our body holds little meaning without the health of our mind, without happiness and a will to go on. As we age, this only becomes more important. We, as future health professionals, must understand how to care for each person individually, not as another body, but as a whole and connected person. Care must become highly individualized. I'm sure that there will be some struggle along this path, learning how to exchange the current conveyor belts in our hospitals and our care facilities for truly compassionate and more human care, but it is worth the trouble when you realize that one day you too will become sick or old and will suffer whatever services you leave in place or benefit from whatever changes are made.
It's time to focus less on the scientific/medical meaning of life and more on its fulfillment.
