Somehow this week– which originally looked like a leisurely swing back into routine– has turned into a butt-kicker. (At least the chicken is out of my kitchen.) All the same, I wanted to let you know about a fantastic opportunity coming up if you’re in Denver or nearby.
In two weeks the Denver Institute for Faith and Work is putting on a forum on Faith and Health Care. I am most excited about Dr. Ray Barfield’s presentation Thursday, January 22. Dr. Barfield is a pediatric oncologist who also writes powerfully about the intersection of faith, medicine and suffering. I’ve been asked to give a short response to his presentation as it relates to my experience serving with underinsured and vulnerable populations.
Next week come back here to link up to an Invisible Victories post (start your engines now!), and if you’d like to join us on Thursday the 22nd of January please stop by after and say hello!
Faith & Health Care Forum
Where’s God in healthcare today? Join Dr. Ray Barfield, physician and professor at Duke University, for a forum on faith and health care on January 22, from 6-9pm at the CU Center for Bioethics and Humanities. The evening will include presentations on access to health care, end-of-life issues and the current state of the healthcare practitioner’s vocation. Tickets are $15.
