Other Mennonite-related Organizations
The Anabaptists in Healthcare Professions Facebook group is an interdisciplinary nucleus of Anabaptists that seeks to network, nurture, and support fellow Anabaptist students and professionals in healthcare. This group facilitates collaboration and discussion between individuals, as well as organizations such as Mennonite Healthcare Fellowship (MHF), Global Anabaptist Healthcare Network (GAHN), and others. The group was originally created by Thomas Fisher to help first generation college students network and succeed in college. Within five months of the group’s creation, the group accumulated three hundred active members. Now, the group serves a hub for advice, job postings, discussion, and networking with Anabaptists in healthcare. The group has facilitated collaborative efforts between a spectrum of Anabaptists, and we anticipate collaborative efforts to continue. To join the group, visit their Facebook page or search for “Anabaptists in Healthcare Professions” in Facebook. A Facebook account is necessary to join the group.
