"A call to faith-based action on behalf of those underserved by the inequitable US health system, with concrete suggestions for helping those in local communities who have no one else to turn to for quality care"--,Provided by publisher.
Description
"Our health-care system doesn't work for the most vulnerable. It's time for people of faith to respond with concrete action to demonstrate God's love and effect real change. Here's how. The dialogue on how to fix US health care is mired in partisan policy debates. Rather than idly waiting for the gridlock to resolve, people of faith can live into their call to care for the underserved right now. Drawing from his experience as a medical doctor, a pastor, and the founder and CEO of the nation's largest charitably funded faith-based health-care center, Scott Morris sheds light on how we can live out a crucial aspect of discipleship by ministering to those caught in the gaps. Through the stories of people too often ignored or dehumanized, Dr. Morris addresses the financial and social barriers to health care for low-income and undocumented individuals, the lack of affordable medications, the challenges of chronic disease and behavioral health issues, and the promising outcomes of faith-based care that treats the whole person. As we continue to reckon with the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic and the inequities in our health systems it has highlighted, Dr. Morris's book calls readers to awareness, action, and advocacy in their local communities on behalf of those who have no one else to turn to for quality care"--,Provided by publisher.
