A Newsweek Poll found that 72 percent of Americans say they would welcome a conversation with their physician about faith; the same number say they believe that praying to God can cure someone—even if science says the person doesn’t st& a chance. Tell your doctor you’d like to see more physicians trained to underst& spirituality & medicine.
