______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________The Lake Union Adventist Community Health Initiative department will work with the local conferences (Illinois, Indiana, Lake Region, Michigan and Wisconsin) to provide coordination assistance to establish community-centered healthcare initiatives. The goal is to provide basic medical and dental care events.
We will identify healthcare professionals who can triage and provide diagnostic and referral services, assist in training and guiding organizational structure for local leadership teams, facilitate licensing and insurance options to indemnify healthcare professionals at organized events, build a database of healthcare professionals within and beyond the Lake Union to bring leadership and medical/dental services to local community programs, determine locations for health events, and identify healthcare institutions willing to partner in population health initiatives.
We look forward to providing support and leadership to conferences and local churches in the event-planning process. In addition, we also will explore ways to keep the connection going with those with whom we have ministered through our healthcare message.
