Nurturing People: Thriving as Providers in Today's Healthcare Environment

Registration is OPEN for Annual Gathering, October 13th-15th at Camp Alexander Mack in Milford, Indiana (about 20 minutes from Goshen).

Register Here for Annual Gathering:  October 13-15, 2023 at Camp Mack 


One of Doris Janzen Longacre’s Five Life Standards is “Nurture People.” But does that only mean nurturing our patients and clients and those we work with, nurturing their health and wellbeing – often at the expense of our own? Or should we instead recognize that provider thriving is integral to a vibrant, flourishing health system and wellbeing for all? Over the course of this weekend with Mennonite Healthcare Fellowship, build deeper relationships with other Mennonite providers, explore the possibilities of our Anabaptist faith bolstering our practice and the hope we bring to medicine, explore strategies for strategic and institutional change towards greater provider thriving, and take time in a beautiful setting to relax and reconnect with yourself, others, and your faith.
