Healing a broken health system – part 2

Healing a broken health system – part 2


In part 1, we presented the story of a young child named Dee and the roles of environment and poverty caused a medical condition that couldn’t be cured just by clinical intervention.  In this video, from the Episcopal Health Foundation, we see can see and experience Dee’s story in another way.

Hi Jerald,

Thanks for your interest in EHF. Please take a look at our Partner with EHF webpage at

You’ll see initial ways churches can begin to work with EHF in establishing health outreach efforts or adding on to those already in place.

I hope this helps. Feel free to contact us anytime to discuss specific ways to get your church involved —

Looked at both articles now, and I have to say respectfully that I was already aware of the problems with unequal access to health care in this country.

Could you give us one additional post in which you lay out concrete steps for how congregations can get involved in this kind of ministry, how smaller parishes can apply for resources, and so forth? I’m excited about the work you’re doing, but I find myself unsure about how to get my church involved.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
