As faith and community organizations place a greater emphasis on the health and wellness of their communities and neighborhoods, they are making their playgrounds, meeting rooms, parish halls, and classrooms available for the health needs of their neighbors. Join us and learn about a network of congregations who have partnered with Bon Secours Health System to regularly host a primary care clinic for the uninsured in their neighborhoods in Richmond, VA. We'll also hear about resources created by ChangeLab Solutions that highlight faith-based organizations that are embracing “shared use” of their facilities and programs to help create and sustain healthy congregations and communities.
