June Medical Services v. Rebekah Gee, Secretary, Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals

By Christian Medical & Dental AssociationsĀ® | January 28, 2020

This case addresses the constitutionality of abortion facility safety regulations. It is essential, therefore, that this Court understand that abortion, as currently practiced in the United States (and other developed nations), is often the occasion of medical mishaps, even serious injuries and deaths.

I Got My Joy Backā€¦Now What? A Deeper Understanding of Joy Through a Trip to Israel

By Christian Medical & Dental AssociationsĀ® | December 8, 2020

In the fall 2017 edition of Todayā€™s Christian Doctor, I wrote an article about burnout stealing joy in my personal and professional life. I am thankful the Lord brought me out of that low place. He has continued to work on helping me understand what I initially wrote:

ā€œJoy is not a feeling of happiness; it is a daily commitment. According to Psalm 51:12, joy stems from understanding our worth in Christ and what we receive through His salvation. Joy starts with having the humility of a child that Jesus talks about in Matthew 18:4. Joy continues through an obedient life and trials that lead to perseverance according to James 1:2-3.ā€

Dentally Impacting the World for Christ

By Christian Medical & Dental AssociationsĀ® | December 7, 2020

Over the last two years, CMDAā€™s dental outreach has developed into a two-pronged approach, ministering to traditional private dental professionals and also those seeking to serve the underserved, both domestically and internationally. Vice President for Dental Ministries Dr. William ā€œGriffā€ Griffin focuses primarily on engaging with our dental members, while Vice President for Dental Education Dr. Jeff Amstutz is developing general practice dental residency programs to equip dentists in ministering to the poor in the name of Jesus. Both aspects of CMDAā€™s Dental Ministries have been made possible by the generosity of the late Dr. Pete Dawson, who we seek to honor in this article, as we trace the Lordā€™s guiding hand over the last decade.

Racism in Healthcare: No One is Immune

By Christian Medical & Dental AssociationsĀ® | September 2, 2020

ā€œCreate in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.ā€
ā€”Psalm 51:10, ESV

It must start with us.

Many things have been laid bare this year. In late 2019, a novel Coronavirus referred to as SARS-CoV-2 originating in Wuhan, Hubei, China spread to the United States becoming a global pandemic. By mid-July of this year, there were close to 13 million confirmed COVID-19 cases worldwide, with around six million active cases affecting more than 200 countries. In the United States, there have been more than three million COVID-19 cases (with more than one million recovered) and more than 500,000 deaths. We would soon learn that African Americansā€”who make up 13 percent of the U.S. populationā€”disproportionately comprise U.S. COVID-19 fatalities, with many having underlying health conditions such as diabetes, hypertension and asthma. Income and wealth inequalities also tend to create greater disparities within communities of color, making access to adequate healthcare and healthy living an elusive and unaffordable necessity.

Downcast: Suffering, Depression and the Goodness of God

By Jennifer Huang Harris, MD | June 1, 2020

The question of suffering is a big one in depression, since suffering can lead to depression, and depression itself is suffering. We are fortunate to live in a society that is largely insulated from suffering, compared to other places and times where people have had to grapple with the daily reality of illness, death, poverty or war. As a consequence, we are fearful of any kind of suffering.

Christian doctors and nurses are on the frontlines serving people in need. Driven by our faith, we welcome and care for everyone, especially the underserved. We care for homeless and migrant communities, prisoners living with HIV, and victims of gang violence, sex trafficking, opioid addiction and deadly epidemics. But our service is threatened by lawsuits brought in New York, Washington and California, which challenge commonsense conscience protections for healthcare professionals of faith. Religious healthcare professionals of all religions must be free to continue providing compassionate care without being forced to perform procedures, such as abortions, that would require them to violate their most deeply held beliefs.

Without sufficient quantities of protective equipment for staff members, would rural mission hospitals be able to survive the pandemic? In countries where the medical infrastructure is limited at best, would there be enough resources? What about food and other supplies to help to meet the day-to-day needs if the airports closed?

The Dr. John Patrick Bioethics Column: How do we push back on the hubris of secularism?

By John Patrick, MD | June 21, 2021

You have never seen and will never see a multi-cultural patient. Every patient inhabits a cultural story of meaning, even though they are often unaware of this fact. The blue-collar neighborhood where I grew up lived by Judeo-Christian ethics. Though almost no one went to church, they did send their children to Sunday school as a kind of visceral acknowledgement of needing something more. Many of you remember when a blue-collar argument on morals would end when someone said, ā€œThe Bible saysā€¦.ā€ That doesnā€™t happen anymore, and that is the triumph of secular power.

As you know, several U.S. jurisdictions have passed legislation giving doctors immunity from civil and criminal liability for assisting the suicide of persons diagnosed with terminal disabilities. Tragically, in these jurisdictions and for this class of persons, and for them alone, suicides are now facilitated by physicians, usually with no psychological assessment or other medical treatment, typically with no consultation with family and loved ones, and in every case without the interventions and protections provided as a matter of course to all other suicidal persons.

Making CMDA Better: Lessons from Basic Life Support

By Mike Chupp, MD | June 1, 2020

I still remember the first time I donned a whitecoat (one of those half-length coats for students) with a stethoscope in my pocket and walked into a patient room at the big city hospital in Indianapolis, Indiana in 1985. I was a second-year medical student at Indiana University, and I had just received instruction from my clinical instructor on how to perform a thorough history and physical. I donā€™t remember my first patientā€™s name, but she was a young woman with a loud systolic heart murmur even I could hear. I also remember three words that were to guide me through each step of a thorough physical exam: ā€œLook, listen and feel.ā€ A couple of years later, those three words became critical again as I took my first basic life support (BLS) course and became certified both in BLS and Advanced cardiac life support (ACLS), prior to becoming a surgical resident. Again, the phrase, ā€œLook, listen and feel,ā€ was the guiding mantra to get my first BLS certification card.

Artificial Intelligence and the Christian Physician

By William P. Cheshire, Jr., MD | June 1, 2020

To speak of artificial intelligence (AI) conjures dazzling images of an electronically reconfigured future managed, if not dominated, by calculating, thinking, autonomous machines. Realistically, AI has the potential to deliver numerous useful benefits to medical practice, especially as progress in medical science and healthcare delivery rely increasingly on digital technologies to store and analyze huge data sets. The health information in the human genome and the scientific content of medical journals, for example, exceed the capacity of the human brain to recall, interpret or keep up with exponential advances. AI promises to bridge that gap. Proponents are calling AI the fourth technological revolution following the neolithic transition to agriculture, the industrial revolution utilizing mechanized production and new sources of power, and the digital revolution based on computer processing of digital information.

Street Medicine: Running a Free Clinic in the Era of COVID

By Christian Medical & Dental AssociationsĀ® | January 5, 2022

When I contracted COVID-19 on March 18, 2020, it was so early in the outbreak of the pandemic that my illness sent shock waves of fear through Inland Vineyard Medical Mission and Free Clinic where I serve as director. Everyone on our team was worried, including our student workers. How would we keep our team safe? And how would we still treat our patients? For most of our patients, we are their main source for both food and medical care. Where would they go if we suddenly shut our doors?

The Temptations: Addressing Same-Sex Attractions

By Christopher Yuan | April 22, 2020

Same-sex sexual expression is sinful, but what about same-sex attractions? As a new Christian, I had defined attraction to be equivalent to temptaĀ¬tion. Therefore, I believed that all same-sex attractions were not sinfulā€”because temptations were not sinful. However, I realized not everyone defined attraction the same.

Nothing is Wasted

By Christian Medical & Dental AssociationsĀ® | June 7, 2017

It was October 1997 and I was spending a semester studying abroad in Australia. I was at a church service, where a group who had just returned from a trip to Namibia was speaking. I listened to their presentation and was struck by how “meaningful” it all seemed, and how, by contrast, what I was doing (studying civil engineering) was not.

Physician as Employee: Is This What I Signed Up For?

By Christian Medical & Dental AssociationsĀ® | September 1, 2008

Healthcare has changed dramatically over the past fifty years. Theories abound as to the various causes and their effects ā€“ with managed care, the Generation X work ethic, and increased numbers of women in medicine being three commonly cited reasons for the decline of the traditional ā€œfamily docā€ who made house-calls and whose work hours were 24/7 as needed and the steep increase in the ā€œphysician shift workerā€ who figuratively clocks in and out and leaves his pager behind when he is off duty. Managed care brought financial pressures to bear on physicians in solo practice. Generation X brought a tide of newly graduated physicians whose definition of balance was quite different from that of their parentsā€™ generation.

The Marriage Viewpoint

The Marriage Viewpoint

By Christian Medical & Dental AssociationsĀ® | June 1, 2012

George MacDonald, mentor to C. S. Lewis, penned these words many years ago: ā€œThe highest calling of every husband and wife is to help each other to do the will of God.ā€ While most of us would wholeheartedly agree, we struggle to apply this principle to the unique challenges of medical marriages. Few professions have the myriad of obstacles facing a vibrant marriage that a medical career brings. At the same time, medicine is a vocation with great potential benefitsā€”both to the couple and the lives they touchā€”as God works through their union. How crucial it is for us to focus on helping each other be all God has intended for us to be as individuals and as a couple.

Sugar cane-sweet, juicy. Anyone familiar with the taste will salivate at the mention of the word. During our years in Kenya, a fresh stalk of sugar cane trumped all other treats as far as our children were concerned. Eagerly they watched us cut away the tough outer layer with a sharp knife.
