Please join us for a meal.
We want to creates spaces for healthcare professionals and trainees to (1) create meaningful relationships with others in their field and (2) dialogue about how faith in Jesus relates to the practice of healthcare. To that end we host a dinner and discussion on the third Friday of every month.
Meetings are usually at Harvard Medical School, JBM Lounge in Vanderbilt Hall, from 6:30-8:30pm, unless otherwise indicated. Childcare is provided and RSVP is appreciated (see below). Here are our upcoming meetings and speakers:
March 15: World Cafe style dinner. There will be around 10 tables, each focused on a different topic. You will have around 20 minutes to discuss the topic of your choice with other people. Then you will rotate and do it again. Finally, we will share a bit of what we learned all together. This is a great opportunity to engage around issues and topics of interest to you. Vote on what you want to talk about when you RSVP or propose some new topics that can be added to the list!
April 26 (not the third Friday): Gloria White-Hammond and Ray Hammond, two doctors who switched over and became pastors of the Bethel AME church in Boston will be sharing about their experiences and their unique insights into the crossroads of healthcare and faith.
May 17: Michael Balboni MDiv, PhD. Michael will be sharing about the ideas he and Tracy wrote about in their recent book, Hostility to Hospitality. He and Tracy advocate for the restructuring of how medicine is done in hospitals and clinics.
November 15: Chris Manasseh, MD. Interim Chair, Department of Family Medicine at BMC. He will be sharing from his experiences working at BMC and about opportunities he has had to share his faith, primarily with patients.
