Micah/WBC programming for October has two elements. As customary a reading is forwarded for your study. Also, on Wednesday, October 29, 2014, the Seton Hall Micah/WBC chapter presents our first speaker program. (See attached flyer)
These talks focus on themes that raise questions about balancing faith, family, and work. This month Dr. Andrea Bartoli, Dean of Seton Hall’s Diplomacy School, will share his thoughts about negotiation developed from extensive experience with the international community.
Please join us on the 29th at 6:30 pm in the Diplomacy Room of McQuaid Hall, School of Diplomacy and International Relations.
The reading sent is taken from Health Progress magazine, the journal of the Catholic Healthcare Association. Chris Lowney, a frequent source for Micah/WBC materials, is the author. Inspired by his reading of Pope Francis’ homilies, Chris wrote this bold visionary document about Catholic healthcare.
The health care industry is experiencing change and stakeholders are trying to make adjustments to thrive in the 21st century. Lowney believes that this upheaval creates opportunities. He writes:
“Instead of merely weathering the change, perhaps, we
should be pressing for an even more fundamental
reimagining of how U. S. health care ought to function,
because the current direction of change, pushed to its
logical conclusion, presages a new Catholic moment
in health care.”
Hopefully, Chris’ writing will bring insight and clarity about industry issues and the opportunities that lie ahead for Catholic health care.
Enjoy this month’s reading, and join us on the 29th for Dean Bartoli’s presentation.
