Dr. Keith Norman To Lead ‘Book Of Life’ Self-Care Seminar For Faith, Health Leaders

Monday, September 23, 2019
Pastor and healthcare executive Keith Norman will lead Book of Life’s “End of Life: Caring for Others, Caring for Self,” a half-day seminar for faith and health leaders, scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 29, at CHI Memorial Hospital’s Community Rooms.  

"Dr. Norman will guide a thought-provoking seminar designed to teach faith and health leaders to care for themselves while continuing to care for others," officials said.  "A community panel will provide a response with insights for caring for the mind, body, and spirit."

“Many clergy, doctors and other caregivers readily share in the journeys that our community’s families take when a loved one faces the end of life.
While these professionals can help those families embrace those journeys with wisdom, peace, and dignity, no one can deny the mental, spiritual and physical challenges that come with such care. This seminar will train leaders on how to nourish their own well-being so they can be there for the families who need them,” said Dr. Greg Phelps, chief medical officer at Hospice of Chattanooga, one of the event’s founding partners.

Book of Life founding partners include Chattanooga Association for Clinical Pastoral Care, Chattanooga-Hamilton County Medical Society, CHI Memorial Hospital, Southeast Tennessee Area Agency on Aging & Disability, Hospice of Chattanooga and St. Francis of Assisi.

The Book of Life seminar will run from 8:30 a.m.-noon. Registration is $25 and includes free parking and breakfast at the Memorial Community Rooms of CHI Memorial Hospital, 2525 de Sales Ave. More information is available at www.hospiceofchattanooga.org/bol or by calling the Hospice of Chattanooga Foundation, 423-805-7050.

"This seminar will train leaders on how to nourish their own well-being so they can be there for the families who need them," said Dr. Phelps.
