Richard A Swenson, MD

Richard A. Swenson, MD, received his B.S. in physics (Phi Beta Kappa) from Denison University (1970) and his M.D. from the University of Illinois School of Medicine (1974). Following five years of private practice, in 1982 Dr. Swenson accepted a teaching position as Associate Clinical Professor within the University of Wisconsin Medical School system where he taught for fifteen years. He currently is a full-time futurist, physician-researcher, author, and educator. As a physician, his focus is “cultural medicine,” researching the intersection of health and culture. As a futurist, his emphasis is fourfold: the future of the world system, western culture, faith, and healthcare.

Dr. Swenson has traveled extensively (to fifty-five countries, living abroad for a total of three years), including a year of study in Europe and medical work in developing countries. While speaking at a church in Kuwait (2009), he fished in the Persian Gulf in sight of Iran & Iraq with a Pakistani guide named Mohammad. He is author of nine books, including the best-selling MARGIN: Restoring Emotional, Physical, Financial, and Time Reserves to Overloaded Lives and THE OVERLOAD SYNDROME: Learning to Live within Your Limits, both award-winning. His latest book is CONTENTMENT: The Secret to a Lasting Calm (June 2013). His books have seen eleven translations and are known to exist in 150 countries.

He has written and presented widely, including both national and international settings, on the themes of margin, balance, contentment, stress, overload, complexity, progress, societal change, healthcare, future trends, and the connection between science and theology. A representative listing of presentations include a wide variety of career, professional, educational, governmental and management groups, most major church denominations and organizations, members of the United Nations, Congress, NASA, and the Pentagon. A Minute of Margin was distributed to thirty heads of state at the 2012 Chicago NATO conference. He was an invited guest participant for the 44th Annual National Security Seminar at the Army War College.

Dr. Swenson has given keynote presentations to national medical conferences such as the American Academy of Family Physicians, the American Association of Occupational Medicine, and the U. S. Army Medical Research and Material Command Commander’s Conference. He has given a dozen presentations at the Mayo Clinic, as well as hundreds of other national, regional, state, and local medical settings. He also has researched extensively and written on the future of healthcare, helping to initiate a national multidisciplinary group examining the health care crisis and exploring new paradigms. In 2003, he was awarded Educator of the Year by Christian Medical & Dental Associations.

What Others are Saying About | More Than Meets the Eye

Where Are We Headed?

5 5 1
Dr West logically lays out where we are and where we are headed as a nation confused in a high tech society. We are questioning the very truths that have made us great and causing many to abandon their faith and the principles that God so clearly demonstrates in His Word. Do we give up on what we know is expected of us as believers? Do we turn from all the controversy? Each of us have to choose which hills we are willing to die on. This book is for those who want to weigh truth to unsubstantiated but popular views that will surely dominate the direction our country and the world will choose in the future. My wife and I have shared this book with 10 other families who we know will appreciate and absorb the importance in this vital and timely message.

Thoughtful Read for Christian Laymen

A real thought provoking read. It will make a difference as I talk to friends about Jesus and the way we live.
