By Staff | Dec 13, 2011

Dr. Dave Didden has a visiona vision of breaking health care barriers and building a community that cares about the well being of others. While the politician debates and the pundits rant about “Obamacare,” Dr. Didden has decided to challenge his neighbors in Shepherdstown to “be the change they wish to see in health care.”

As a family physician who was raised in Jefferson County, Didden has a vision of a community that creates health, one relationship at a time. “We all have inherent abilities to heal,” says Didden. “Our nature as humans is to care for others, and caring relationships are healing relationships,” he added.

Didden and other community leaders are presenting “Care Jam 2011” on December 15, 2011 at the Old Opera House in Shepherdstown, WV. “Care Jam” is going to be a fun time for all ages, when we get together to hear some great local music, eat healthy local foods and start a conversation about how we can support each other to create a healthier community,” Didden added.

Dr. Didden recognizes that this community has an amazing collection of people with vast talent, experience, wisdom, and training. Access to health care is a barrier for many, but the fragmented, defensive care we deliver is equally problematic.

The dialogue about health care is ongoing and the debate about what is best for all makes for a lengthy discussion. However, the question still remainsAt the end of the day, who is caring for your neighbors?
