Emily Donato, a Board member with InterChurch Health Ministries Canada, was recently chosen to serve as Parish Health Council and Pastoral Chair at her local Parish in Sudbury ON. Emily is an RN Associate Professor, School of Nursing at Laurentian University. One of her published articles, that she wrote with her students, features a faith community nursing initiative  conducted in partnership with a local parish. The main objectives of this initiative were to review the literature on faith community nursing, identify a model to guide the assessment and work that would occur within the setting, and to complete a needs assessment of the faith community.
