2016 Montgomery County Health Care Forum

Our Healthcare Forum included state and county officials addressing changes in healthcare policy, and ACA enrollment; hospital directors of programs in health equity, parish nursing and wellness addressing partnerships with faith communities; President & Executive Director of the Primary Care Coalition addressing the Nexus partnership with all 6 hospitals in MC to improve preventative healthcare; and Chair of the Black Ministers Conference Healthcare Committee addressing role of faith leaders in improving healthcare within faith communities.

Chief take was learning hospitals have incentives to work collaboratively with faith communities and we need to do more to inform and empower faith leaders in recognizing and fulfilling their role.
