In the midst of providing healthcare in a world of suffering and pain, stress and trauma, injustice and climate change, Christian healthcare workers face many challenges and opportunities. How do we maintain our focus on caring, nourish our own spiritual lives, and provide encouragement and support to live out our faith in ways that witness to Christ’s healing and hope in the world?
Proposals for both workshops and plenary sessions should touch on this theme in some way. Proposals are especially welcomed on the following topics: wellness, holistic health, self-care, trauma, climate change and health, international health, community development, etc. Perspectives from medicine, nutrition, mental health, chaplaincy, and other related fields are encouraged. Presentations of significant interest or timely nature that are not on the theme will also be considered.
Plenary sessions will be 40-50 minute large group presentations as part of an hour time slot. Workshops will be one-hour smaller group interactive sessions. Please submit a copy of your CV along with this completed form for each presentation proposal. For proposals involving more than one person, have a coordinator fill out this form and see the note at the end to add information.
All proposals must be submitted by Sunday, November 18, 2018.
