201 North Oak Street
Hinsdale, IL 60521

Organized by the UChicago Medicine AdventHealth Mission Ministry department, the event will offer an opportunity to reflect on what it means to be whole, including how a person can experience wholeness and perfect peace when the body, mind and spirit are in harmony.

“Exploring what it means to feel whole is especially important today when burnout is an ongoing challenge for many people,” said Mark Bondarenko, executive director of Mission Ministry for UChicago Medicine AdventHealth.

Hosted by John Grys, president of the Illinois Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, the event will focus on questions such as:

  • What makes you feel whole?
  • When did you last feel a deep sense of belonging?
  • Can you imagine feeling well in body, mind and spirit?
  • Can you imagine having a deep sense of purpose or helping others feel whole?

Participants will explore wholeness through stories of compassionate care told by UChicago Medicine AdventHealth team members. The event will also feature a presentation by guest speaker Carla Park, vice president of Wholeness and Faith Strategy at AdventHealth, who developed a wholeness framework for AdventHealth hospitals, churches and the community.

“It will be an evening of community, worship, wonderful music and inspirational stories of hope, healing and purpose,” Bondarenko said. “Please join us, and feel free to bring your families and friends. It’s going to be an amazing, uplifting event.”
