2017 Conference - From the Clinic to the Community: Looking Outside the Walls of Your Clinic

This session is a personal story of a family physician who worked in a mission hospital in Kenya, East Africa for 13 years. Through a series of events and personal relationships, this doctor's ministry shifted from what "he could do" as a clinician to a vision of "what God can do" when communities are empowered to own their processes of community health and development and manage their health priorities. This session emphasizes the role of public health workers in promoting a wholistic view of the gospel that includes spiritual, physical, emotional, and social well-being. Philip Renfroe
