Description

Please join leaders involved in international outreach for a one-day meeting sponsored by the Catholic Health Association of the United States (CHA). This meeting, on May 4, is an opportunity for CHA members and partner organization leaders from the Denver area to collectively discuss their activities, practices, cautionary information and potential for collaboration. This event, being held at Catholic Health Initiatives’ system offices, will also facilitate raised awareness about CHA research in and resources/tools for appropriate short-term medical mission trips, medical surplus donations, as well as about overall international outreach activities including disaster response.

Please make plans to attend this in-person gathering. It is being offered at no cost to those persons currently supporting international initiatives as well as relevant colleagues from sponsoring congregations, higher education, finance, governance, clinical operations, diocesan staff who work with missions and others who are champions of this work. For additional information, please contact Bruce Compton, CHA senior director of international outreach, at bcompton@chausa.org.

  • Describe activities included under the umbrella of international outreach: disaster response, medical teams, immersion, surplus recovery, volunteers and some "gold standard" practices for each.

  • Recognize the International efforts of Denver Area regionally-based Catholic health care institutions and their partners.

  • Continue to network with leaders from non-governmental organizations (NGOs), health care leaders, CRS and more who attend.
