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:
September 21: Testimonies: we have several members of our community, a pharmacist, two researchers, and a doctor who will be sharing about how they have seen God at work at their work. It will be a very encouraging time to hear about their experiences and to consider how we can better integrate our own faith and work.
October 19-20: Whole Person Care Conference opening night - free for everyone. Register to be able to attend the Saturday training and practical application. Click on the tab at the top of the page for more information.
November 16: Women in Medicine: Featuring Dr. Amy Hale PhD, Dr. Susan Hata MD, and Dr. Rebecca Saff MD, PhD. The purpose of this event will be to have panel members share about their career, faith, and the challenges Christian women face in the medical field. In the era of #MeToo, we as a community want to develop a better understanding of the difficulties unique to women, among both men and women. We invite all people, regardless of gender, to come to this event that is sure to be very helpful to all attendees!
December 7 (not the third Friday): Christmas Party, take a break from end of the year work and celebrate through games, food, and carols.
January 18: HMS Veritas Forum and follow on discussions. We are going to be trying to engage people in conversation over food following the forum. This is a great opportunity for us to connect with the broader community around issues of faith and healthcare. More information to follow about getting involved and perhaps even helping to lead a discussion with the aide of preparatory material.
