Join us virtually on April 21, 2021 at 10:00 a.m. as Pam Hurley, Director for the Faith Community Health Ministry Program at Atrium Health, leads us in a discussion about the concept of how treating the whole person is deeply rooted in many religions, making churches, temples, synagogues, mosques and other places of worship natural environments for promoting better health. She will also discuss how Faith Community Health Ministry is a collaboration between Atrium Health and faith communities throughout the region that promotes health and wholeness of mind, body and spirit. Through this ministry, they honor the long held belief that faith and health are intertwined.
