This week, we are transitioning both the website and the blog to reflect our new status as official members of the Christian Medical Dental Associations. Also, we will be closing down our Wake CMDA website and merging the information under the TCMDA website since Wake CMDA is also merging with the new TCMDA. It will take us the better part of this week to make changes for the Faith In Practice blog which will not have new posts for one week.
Come join us Jeffery Baker, MD, PhD – 8 Nov – Dr. Baker, a pediatrician with Duke, will be our featured speaker at the upcoming Triangle CMDA Fellowship Dinner. Jeff, a noted medical historian, will be sharing a very personal story that weaves together the history of Christianity and hospitals with his own experiences of healing and hospitals during his father’s illness and dying.

But What Can I Say? I suppose two of the most common questions I hear from Christians in healthcare, when thinking about how to encourage their patients, are: “What should I / can I pray?” and “What if my patient isn’t a Christian, but a Jew, Muslim, or some other faith system?”
Please visit our Wake CMDA website for announcements of meetings, Bible studies, etc.
Greetings, fellow CMDA members of North Carolina,
Often we speak of being a Christian doctor or a Christian healthcare professional. Is that a subjective term, or are there some recognizable benchmarks which can truly distinguish the Christian professional from all others?
