Madry explained her interest in being EHF’s first diocesan engagement officer and how her varied work experience seemed a perfect fit for the job.
“I see my job as being a catalyst for our congregations and our work as supporting transformation toward healthier communities.” Madry told EDOT’s Carol Barnwell. “I want to learn from the people who are already involved. There are also a lot of churches that are just now beginning to consider how they might get started. Helping them figure out next steps will be important.”
Madry and EHF’s Impact team are currently surveying leaders of Episcopal congregations across the Diocese. The team will use the responses to help inform EHF’s strategy for how best to work with churches who are interested in deepening their involvement around community health issues.
