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). Look even further down for recordings from past dinners. Here are our upcoming meetings and speakers:
April 27: World Cafe style table discussions. The evening will be focused on people engaging in discussion around relevant and interesting topics. Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in two separate twenty minute conversations as they share their own knowledge about a topic and find out more from others who are there. Potential topics include: Thriving in Residency, Faith and Pharmacy, Christian Missions, Spiritual Practices, Discipleship, Spirituality and Health Research, Developing Mentorship, Acting Against Injustice, etc. These topics are meant to be relevant and engaging and to do that we need your input!

May 18: Benjamin Warf, MD. Director, Neonatal and Congenital Anomaly Neurosurgery at Boston Children's. Professor of Neurosurgery, Harvard Medical School.
