Annual William S. Perper Healthy Community Partnership National Symposium
Faith-based communities and organizations have a long tradition of providing care for individuals and families impacted by illness or disability. The need for such care will continue to grow as our population ages.
The 5th Annual William S. Perper Symposium is a free conference on November 2 from 8 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. that will feature a panel of representatives from several faith traditions who will speak about how their faith and sacred scriptures inform the caregiving they offer. Later in the day, four faith-based organizations will discuss the services and support they provide for the community. Additionally, a resource fair will feature more than 20 community organizations that are working collaboratively with Johns Hopkins Bayview and The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation.
If you are interested in learning more about caregiving and community resources, we invite you to attend this year's symposium. Previous attendees at the William S. Perper Symposium have included clergy, chaplains, social workers, congregants, and other individuals who provide care and support to patients, their families and their communities.
Register online by October 21. For more information, call 410-550-1118.5th Annual William S. Perper Symposium
