Faith in Medicine

A note from the author: “I grew up in a Christian Faith tradition I continue to practice to this day, and the thoughts and opinions I express in this column will be biased therein. I understand that while Christianity is the only way in which I know God, this is not the case for others of different faith backgrounds, and I respect and appreciate the various Faith traditions that are integral to all our lives. The articles found in this column will be focused on addressing a single question: How is God involved in Medicine? I will share my opinion not to convince you of my position, but simply to challenge you to consider the issue for yourself.

I would love to hear from you! How do you agree? How do you disagree? What topic would you like to hear more about?” Please share your thoughts and responses with

Hello! I'm a resident physician at Oak Hill Hospital in Brooksville, FL. I graduated from the University of Florida in 2018 where I helped manage a spoken word poetry student organization. Thereafter, I graduated from FIU Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine in 2022. My passion for the arts and humanities found its home in medicine, through which I have been able to explore both. Outside of medicine, I enjoy playing guitar, dancing, playing sports, reading, and exploring mathematics.
