The Cleveland Clinic Health and Faith Cooperative recently visited South University, Cleveland Doctor of Ministry (DMIN) students. Dr. Elaine Bednar, along with six of the DMIN students, are active participants with the Health and Faith Cooperative. Focused on integrating congregational and community care giving with traditional healthcare, the goal of the cooperative is to reach the under served populations in the Cleveland Area.  Rev. Brian Shields, Natalie Rudd, Dr. Jacquelyne Bailey, and Jacqueline Tinsley interacted with students for input on advocacy, changing the clinic’s image, how to build a better understanding of the challenges of wellness, and how to encourage congregants to participate in their own wellness.
