The Heart in Health Care Reformheart in hcr graphic

A project to help people of faith move beyond cable news interpretations of health care reform to intentional reflection and conversation based on the faith-inspired values that give meaning to the lives we share together.

Throughout the process to enact health care reform in the United States, the Faithful Reform in Health Care coalition consistently elevated a moral vision for our health care future. As we move through the implementation and regulatory process, we continue to measure progress against "A Faith-Inspired Vision of Health Care" (see below). Coalition members will elevate the compassionate realities of reform, and identify where injustice in health care continues to diminish the common good.

Resources will be developed and posted on this website, including analysis, talking points, PowerPoints, adult study outlines, and more. Check back regularly for new resources and updates!
