How Do Anabaptist Healthcare Providers Serve as Catalysts for Social Justice?

Session Recording Available Now


On March 21st a group of MHF members gathered for a discussion on the role of Anabaptist healthcare providers in promoting and serving as catalysts for social justice. It was a very meaningful discussion, led by MHF Board President Clair Hochstetler! Watch the session recording above or on YouTube (link below).

Clair writes about the theme of the session:

Many of us in healthcare with an Anabaptist theological and experiential base tend to get involved in social justice movements and programs simply because of who we are. Some of us would like to be more involved but have time constraints. Some of us perceive deep need and understand the impacts on our client’s lives as a result of severe injustice and systemic health disparities, but aren’t sure of the best way to respond. This session will draw out participants’ stories, provide a guilt-free environment to normalize the tensions and conflictual agenda that arise when engaged in the messiness of people’s lives and the injustices they/we experience. It will be an opportunity for stimulating ideas and awareness of involvements and generate support among each other as we seek make a difference in the lives of those we serve and the systems we would like to change within our communities.
