Balancing Mind, Body & Spirit: Complete Health for Self & Community will be the title of an early spring conference for nurses, health professionals, health ministers, clergy and anyone interested in gaining skills in a caring ministry in their faith community. The 11th annual Faith Community Nurses Association 2018 Conference is scheduled for Friday, March 2, 2018 at Crossings Community Center, 10255 North Pennsylvania Ave, Oklahoma City OK.
The message of 1st Corinthians, So there should be no division in the body, but its parts should have equal concern for each other, helps people see that we are whole beings and must learn to balance our lives and care for all parts of our being. The Model for Healthy Living is a tool for individuals to use to take charge of their own health, and it reflects that true wellness is not just about our bodies but about the interconnectedness of body and spirit in the ways that we live. There are seven key dimensions of the Model for Healthy Living are Faith Life, Medical Care, Movement, Work, Emotional Life, Nutrition, Friends and Family. The Model for Healthy Living is a communication method, a planning tool, a health care strategy in which both providers and patients can actively participate. Local and national experts will lead participants in each of the dimensions of the Model. This conference will also provide the opportunity for participants to network and to build relationships with nurses and health ministers interested in Faith Community Nursing.
