We often think of risk management as simply insurance. However, risk management encompasses far more than insurance and understanding this will have a positive impact on your health ministry. In this webinar, we will look at the Seventh-day Adventist Church corporate structure to understand the importance of health ministries and explore practical solutions for health ministry’s leadership in the area of risk management.
