The New York State (NYS) Department of Health (DOH) AIDS Institute (AI), in collaboration with Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health and New York Theological Seminary and other key partners will convene the forum –

INTERSECTION OF FAITH & HEALTH: Sustaining Partnerships to Improve Public Health Outcomes. 
New York Theological Seminary
The Interchurch Center
475 Riverside Drive, Sockman Lounge
(entrance on 120th St.  and Claremont Ave.)
New York, NY  10115
Friday, December 20, 2103
from 9:30am-3:00pm.  

The purpose of this gathering is to bring together leaders of faith and health to continue the dialogue on the intersection of faith and health to improve health outcomes for vulnerable communities.  The forum will begin to put into practice recommendations from the 2012 forum series. Specifically, it will highlight concrete examples of successful faith and health community partnerships, demonstrate best practice models, and identify strategies for sustainability. In addition, it will include dialogue with academic deans and students on the realities of program integration, on strategies for developing formal partnerships, provide learning and networking opportunities, and it will encourage participant understanding of the importance of partnership building.

The ultimate objective of this forum is to produce health literate faith leaders and spiritually-literate healthcare practitioners.
