Goodness to Go: Service Beyond Our Professional Lives
Fran Hamilton, M.D.,
Holistic Family Practice, Boulder Community Hospital

Interface Host: Barry Erdman

About the Presentation:
Goodness To Go is the name of a social enterprise and the title of a handbook for humanitarians written by Fran I. Hamilton, M.D.  The handbook’s intent is to mobilize the spirit of giving by offering a process to clarify and mobilize your goodness to go in ways that are sustainable and enjoyable. This kind of integral service is a cycle of giving and receiving between equals that is aligned with core values and uplifts the human spirit. Fran will share her process of developing this 4 stage model, and invite dialogue with participants about balancing the challenges of personal and professional livelihood with the importance of reaching further and doing good works for others in our world.
