CMDA Northeast Annual Conference

October 28, 2022 – October 30, 2022

North East, MD

During challenging times such as this, we can become disconnected from our neighbor, the people of God, and even God. This is a weekend for a network of future and current healthcare professionals from across the Northeast to gather in a sacred space to lean into the presence of GOD through worship, the word of God, and prayer; create community with colleagues; be refreshed and renewed in the beautiful setting of Sandy Cove Conference Center; and sent forth as Christ’s ambassadors. Do not miss this opportunity to reconnect with God and the people of God called to bring the hope and healing of Christ to the world through healthcare. Register Today!
