Health Promotion: Sun Health

Summer is just around the corner, and we are preparing for the warmer weather. This month, Howard University Medical Students (Dermatology) ran a health promotion class for our patients. They shared information on sun health and skin protection for people of color, and provided patients with some skin care products.

We are grateful for this informative visit, and hope to have the group back again soon!
Celebrating Our Nursing Staff

"Nursing is an embodied profession. It requires one to use their eyes to assess patients, ears to listen closely, intuition and intellect to respond to needs before they become problems, hands to tend to patient care, and feet to be ready to jump in response to an emergency. I love working as a registered nurse and nurse practitioner at Christ House because the model of care celebrates this embodiment, creating space for healing even when not all ails can be cured."
Christ House needs SmarTrip cards!

Patients rely on public transportation to get to and from outside appointments. We are currently in need of SmarTrip cards and are asking for your help.

If you have a SmarTrip card you'd like to donate, please email:
