Religion Communicators Council Learning About Health

The Religion Communicators Council meets each month to hear about a topic of interest. This month, the Nashville Chapter will hear from the Tennessee Department of Health.

Nashville, TN, February 16, 2013 --( Religion Communicators are welcomed and invited to a meeting with Michele Gourley, new Director of Faith-Based Services for the Tennessee Department of Health. This position is new to the Department of Health, but Gourley fits into it like a glove.

She studied at East Tennessee State University and graduated with an M.D after a four year course in Rural Primary Care Track, a community-based experiential curriculum whose core goals emphasize community, rural culture, interdisciplinary team interactions and leadership development.

The Religion Communicators Council (RCC) is pleased to hear from Gourley and learn about this new position. President of the Nashville chapter, Rev. Brian Fesler says, “I’ve met [Gourley] and know her to be sincere in her mission.”
