On the evening of Wednesday, Nov. 20, the idea of compassionate community health will be explored at a mini-conference at Mount St. Mary’s Hospital (Room 249), 5300 Military Road, Lewiston. All members of the community are welcome to this free event, which will include refreshments and will be held from 5-7 p.m.
The goal of compassionate community health is to improve the physical, mental and spiritual health of a community. The event will provide the community an opportunity to hear from representatives of Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center and Mount St. Mary’s Hospital about their efforts to weave compassion into community health. Attendees will then join with others to envision even more compassionate community health.
Presented by the Niagara County Coalition for Services to the Homeless to continue the momentum of its annual conference, the Compassionate Niagara committee is hosting a series of mini-conferences throughout the year to focus in on how different sectors can work together to make this community a compassionate one.
Sponsors for the event include Calspan, Grigg Lewis Foundation, Confer Plastics, Covanta, Fidelis Care, Niagara Falls City School District, Kane Construction, East Hill Foundation, Community Missions, Phi Delta Kappa Chapter No. 0047, Catholic Health – Mount St. Mary’s, the Homeless Alliance of WNY (HAWNY), Kalos Health, Niagara Falls Empire State Poverty Reduction Initiative and Hohl Industrial.
