Your pursuits, no matter how big or how small, can be an inspiration to others. That's the fundamental idea behind the Healthspirations Ambassador Program at The Christ Hospital Health Network. So, what does it mean to be a Healthspirations Ambassador? It's simple, really. If you're a patient or family member who has had a positive experience at The Christ Hospital, one of our many physician practices, or outpatient locations, we invite you to share your story, and begin connecting, engaging and inspiring others.
"When we share our stories, it opens up our hearts for others to share their stories, and gives us the sense that we are not alone on this journey." – Janine Shepherd
As a Healthspirations Ambassador, your pursuits may inspire a family that is going through a difficult time. Your pursuits may raise awareness about a disease or other important health issue. Your pursuits may even lead you to meet and befriend other patient families. You can do as much, or as little as you want. The Healthspirations Ambassador Program provides so many ways for you to engage with The Christ Hospital, and gives you a platform to inspire others.
