For The Community

To help meet the health education needs and requests of our community, Deaconess has developed a speakers bureau and online request process.  Our speakers are experts in their area of practice, and are prepared to inform and educate your group about a variety of health topics.

You can request a speaker for a civic organization, workplace education meeting, church group, and more.  Each presentation is intended to be 30 minutes or less, plus time for questions.  The various presenters have specified the minimum audience size and advance notice required. 

You can browse the topics in the menu below and then request a presentation by completing the form at the bottom of this page.   

Questions? Contact Deaconess Community Outreach & Engagement at (812) 450-7353 or send an email to speakers@deaconess.com.
