Faith Community Nurse & Health Resources
We are blessed to have a highly experienced, full-time faith community nurse, Joanie Friend, serving our congregation. She is asked to help with a broad array of health care transitions, from first-time moms and baby care to hospital and post-hospitalization planning to elder care and family support during end of life decision making.
One of her specialties is facilitating discussions among family members at particularly difficult times. Joanie helps individuals and families better understand their health care options and discern the best choices for their situations.
You can contact Joanie by email or by calling 301-365-2850, ext. 518.
A faith community nurse is a spiritually mature and experienced registered nurse who promotes health and healing within the community of faith. She works with the pastors, educators, and deacons to assess and support the health needs of individuals and the faith community as a whole.
