August 21, 2021
10 – 11:30 am EDT

Join Drs. Farr Curlin and Cathie Scarbrough to enjoy a taste of CMDA’s Faith Rx video series.  Moderated by the program’s director, Dr. Bill Griffin, this webinar will inspire and equip you to address your patient’s spiritual needs with confidence and intentionality.


Farr Curlin, MD
Josiah Trent Professor of Medical Humanities, Co-Director, Theology, Medicine, and Culture Initiative, Duke University
Durham, North Carolina

Bio: Dr. Curlin is a Trent Professor of Medical Humanities and Co-Director of the Theology, Medicine, and Culture Initiative (TMC) at Duke University. Dr. Curlin’s ethics scholarship takes up moral questions that are raised by religion-associated differences in physicians’ practices. He is an active palliative medicine physician and holds appointments in both the School of Medicine and the Divinity School, where he and colleagues offer Christian theological formation to those with vocations to health care.
Title: The Case for Practicing Medicine Christianly
Summary: Our identity in Christ is the foundation for our efforts to provide excellent care for our patients.  Any attempt to artificially separate our faith from our professional lives will be detrimental to both our well-being and that of our patients.  Our faith may make us a bit “different” from our colleagues, but this is a difference that God can use for His glory.


Catherine Scarbrough, MD
Associate Program Director, GRMC Family Medicine Residency Program
Gadsden, Alabama

Bio: Dr. Scarbrough is a faculty physician with the Gadsden Regional Medical Center Family Medicine Residency Program in Gadsden, AL. Her interests include women’s health, whole-person medicine, and global health. She has been a member of CMDA since medical school and enjoys teaching Family Medicine overseas. In her spare time, she likes gardening, baking, and hanging out with her french bulldog, Stella.
Title: Sharing the Good News
Summary: Jesus calls us to “confess (him) before men” in Matthew 10:32, and at times this can be an intimidating responsibility.  What is the basis for our apprehensions, and how can the power of the Gospel transform both us and our patients?  This session demonstrates how our fears can give way to a greater recognition of God’s grace in our lives, turning this responsibility into a privilege.
