PEACE with Penny SEASON 3: Penny S. Tee Interviews Dr. Norbert Goldfield, Founder & Executive Director of Healing Across the Divides, REBROADCAST July 12, 2022 11AM PACIFIC TIME
PEACE with Penny spoke with Dr. Norbert Goldfield, Founder & Executive Director of Healing Across the Divides or HATD. Healing Across the Divides, is an organization of American medical professionals who assist their Israeli and Palestinian counterparts in creating bridge-building programs that improve the health of both Israelis and Palestinians. Established seventeen years ago, their mission is to “Measurably Improve the health of marginalized people living in the Palestinian Territories (PT) and Israel via community-based intervention.” They have funded and provided technical consultation to more than 50 community-based groups in the Palestinian Territories and Israel, and they have positively impacted the health and well-being of more than 200,000 Palestinians and Israelis. By partnering with other foundations in the United States and overseas, their Israeli and Palestinian staff, board and outside experts provide consultation to the community groups during their 3-year grant cycles.
This is Peace building utilizing the health community as a conduit for change. We hope you will take the time to listen as we join Dr. Goldfield and PEACE with Penny and talk about HATD’s work helping health professionals improve people’s well-being and simultaneously promoting Peace. Medical professionals continuously commit themselves through their expertise and their hearts to making the world a safer, healthier place, and we are appreciative and excited to speak about their efforts.
Our prayers continue to go out to the people of Ukraine. And as always, we conclude with a prayer, that Everyone will some day Live in Peace, שלום and سلام.
