PCPs should also be able to treat PLWH in urban areas, where HIV prevalence is high, and in rural areas, where HIV providers are scarce.

Morgan Wills.In this interactive lecture format workshop, Dr. Wills will draw upon the text of Genesis 1 and its many echoes throughout Scripture as well as two decades of experience as a clinician and organizational leader at a charitable health center for uninsured immigrants and refugees to illumine simple, foundational truths and "good news" that can help keep us personally integrated, missionally effective, and professionally relevant.
Dr. Myron Glick and his team will explore this Biblical imperative, and will discuss what it means for followers of Jesus to advocate for the stranger and refugee even when faced with much opposition by others. They will share about their experiences working with refugees, asylum seekers and undocumented neighbors at Jericho Road in Buffalo NY.
Johnathan Brooks was raised in the Englewood neighborhood on the south side of Chicago. As soon as he was able, he left the community and moved as far away as he could. But through a remarkable turn of events, he reluctantly returned and found himself not only back in Englewood but also serving as a pastor ("Pastah J") and community leader. In this session, Jonathan will rediscover that loving your neighbors means loving you're neighborhoods.
