Bridging Health Care and Community Care, headshot of Gregory Scott from Carle Faith Community Health

We welcome Gregory Scott, RN to talk about bringing health care, community care, and wellness advocacy to members of church communities across east central Illinois. Tune in to learn about how volunteer nurses are rebuilding trust.

The Faith Community Health program is working to move healthcare outside the walls of the health system. They are building bridges between the health system and faith communities to identify health and wellness needs and learn how to work together in improving individual health.
