2017 Conference News Print


The CCIH 2017 Conference will be held July 13-15 at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Md. Our theme is Strengthening Global Health: Faith at the Center, a concept closely linked to our Core Focus area of Integrating Faith and Health. We will explore how our Christian faith guides our work, and address such questions as:
  • What is our role as Christians in ensuring all people have access to community-based care and preventive services, especially marginalized communities?
  • What programs have we launched that protect and empower women and children and strengthen families?
  • How do we sustain and strengthen evidence-based and people-centered health systems to ensure high-quality care for all?

Visa Letter Request and New Policy
CCIH appreciates the interest of all our members and partners in attending the conference. However, due to the drastic increase in visa letter requests over the past three years, we have revised our visa letter assistance policy. This decision came after analyzing the percentage of applicants who receive a visa and the time required for CCIH staff to ensure quality service to each visa applicant while faced with time and resource constraints.

Ebola Doctor Kent Brantly To Share His  Faith Journey at 2017 Conference
Compassion over fear. That’s how Dr. Kent Brantly describes the most important lesson he learned from his experience treating Ebola patients in Liberia and ultimately becoming infected with the virus. Dr. Brantly will share that experience and his personal faith journey leading him to serve as a missionary doctor with Samaritan’s Purse in a session at the CCIH Conference. Dr. Brantly was the first person in the world to be treated with the experimental drug ZMapp, and the first person with Ebola to be treated in the United States when he was evacuated to Emory University Hospital. Kent and his wife Amber and two children are now based in Fort Worth, Texas. He treats patients and trains Family Medicine residents at John Peter Smith Hospital. The Brantlys are authors of the book Called for Life. Join us as we hear from Kent how this extraordinary experience has impacted his life, his faith and his work.  Photo by Gaylon Wampler
