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:
April 26th (not the third Friday): Ray and Gloria White 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.
Ray is a Harvard Medical School graduate and was a surgeon. Gloria is a Tufts Medical School graduate and was a pediatrician. Find out more about Ray and Gloria by clicking on their names and bringing up their biographies. If you do, you will probably be surprised at how much they have done!
