Why become an IAHC member?
Marlienne Goldin, Membership Committee Chair
Attending my first International Association of Human Caring, (IAHC) in 2003 was transformational. Since that weekend in Chautauqua Park, Boulder, Colorado I have not missed a conference in these past 15 years. Not only has membership afforded me access to an international journal filled with Human Caring resources and information from all over the globe, it has given me access to international scholars, experts and researchers in the field of Human Caring. To find a group of like-minded people who believe Human Caring is of vital importance to our lives and to our planet is only one of the benefits of membership in IAHC. Exploring the science behind Human Caring is vital to our promotion of humanity. Many sciences address the physicality of the human body. Caring Science addresses the sanctity of the spirit to spirit connection.
I have many institutional memberships, but IAHC is the one I value the most. The IAHC addresses the importance of caring for the human spirit. Human Caring is of concern, and interest to all disciplines, not just the discipline of healthcare. Sustaining Human Caring is vital to all who care about humanity. Membership in IAHC is a gift to one’s self. Join the IAHC and let’s get together at the next conference in Greenville, SC. I look forward to meeting you there!
