The Division of FaithHealth Ministries at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center and Shaw University Divinity School invite you to the Third Annual John W. Hatch FaithHealth Lecture Series on Tuesday, November 27, 2018 from 10:00 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. at Shaw University's Thomas J. Boyd Chapel.  The chapel is located at 118 E. South Street, Raleigh, NC 27601. The Series, named as a commemoration of the pioneering work of Dr. John Hatch in the areas of faith, health, and community organization, seeks to: 

  • Provide a forum for participants to engage in diverse streams of intellectual knowledge gained through individuals, communities and institutions that are relevant to the fields of faith and health.
  • Create opportunities for open dialogue, story sharing, and innovation between faith and health communities towards the goal of improved quality of life in the communities/populations served. 
  • Build stronger communities vested in bridging the space between the healing worlds of faith and health.

"The Hatch Lecture" will again engage faith and health leaders in dynamic and thought provoking dialogue reflective of the strength of faithhealth intersections in improving population health and building stronger communities.  The keynote lecturer will be Rev. Dr. William Barber, II. Dr. Barber is President and Senior Lecturer of Repairers of the Breach, Architect of the Moral Monday Movement in North Carolina, Co-chair of the Poor People's Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival, Pastor of Greenleaf Christian Church, and President Emeritus of the NC NAACP.
