Healthcare and the Church

Methodist churches throughout the conference have the opportunity to help create healthier populations, thanks to a collaboration between  the Texas Annual Conference and Houston Methodist Hospital.

Statistically, a healthcare provider often can predict which patients are more likely to have complications that require them to come back in to the hospital. This likelihood of readmission often is due to problems such as a lack of healthy food, not being able to afford medications, or not going to follow-up appointments due to a lack of transportation. 

“These are all things that the church could help people overcome,” states Rev. Kim Mabry, the Golden Care Project Manager at Houston Methodist Hospital. Learn how from her presentation at the Church and Society & Religion and Race Breakfast at Annual Conference.

The presentation will be on Tuesday, May 30, from 7:30 to 9 am in The Woodlands UMC Children’s Activity Center (2nd floor). Registration is required for the $12 hot buffet breakfast. Please use this online form. Address registration questons to Ana Robles at 713-521-9383 x 301 or
