Connect, Communicate with, Walk Alongside

By: Matthew Montgomery, MD

Dear fellow South Central Pennsylvania CMDA members:


Our national CMDA national organization strives to "motivate, educate and equip healthcare professionals to glorify God". I know they have helped transform my life in this regard.[1]


Our newly formed South Central Pennsylvania CMDA Chapter certainly upholds these ideals. One function of the South Central chapter is connection with the national organization and its many resources, meetings, and conferences. However, as a local group, we also can help connect, encourage and inspire each other with our walk with Jesus in healthcare on a much more personal level. We intend to facilitate this through this through this blog, small local get togethers in the various towns in the area, and Lord willing, a larger event for the whole region. The students at Penn State Hershey College of Medicine have been a focus for CMDA is the region, appropriately so. We hope to continue this but also to expand this to practicing colleagues in the region.


Sometimes I feel I am on a Christian healthcare island. We will all be better if we can connect, communicate with and walk alongside each other in our service to Him in healthcare. With Tom Grosh IV's years of experienced leadership in the region I feel South Central Chapter of CMDA can help us to reach these goals. Please become involved!

Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. ~ Romans 12:1-2, NIV
