Who We Are and What We Do
We are pleased you are considering joining the Association of Spiritual Caregivers (ASC). The ASC is a voluntary association of more than 75 area faith community leaders that work with UnityPoint Health - Meriter and our Department of Spiritual Care to promote health and healing in body,
mind, and spirit.
The Association provides learning opportunities for faith community leaders. In 2019, Rev. Dr. Alex Gee spoke at the Spring education event and the Honorable Judge Everett Mitchell spoke at the Fall education event. The association also assists area faith communities in their efforts to be centers of health and healing.
If you join the ASC, you will receive the following membership benefits:
- Access to information required in caring for the needs of patients.
- Opportunities for continuing education and networking.
- Access to the our medical library.
Special Ministry Opportunities
