Many Voices, Many Visions, "Gigi's Playhouse/Common Ground Health"
October 8, 2017 —
October is Down Syndrome Awareness Month across the United States. Here in Rochester—parents of children with Down Syndrome are celebrating at a place called “Gigi’s Playhouse." It offers free therapeutic and educational programming for those with Down Syndrome and their families. When do faith and medicine intersect? These days the answer to that is more than ever and more than you might expect. Faith communities are starting health ministries and nowhere are congregations making a more concerted effort than in the African American community which struggles with some of Rochester most challenging health issues. We'll learn about Common Ground Health's Interdenominational Health Ministry Coalition.
