My Doctorate in Secret-Keeping

By Autumn Dawn Galbreath, MD, MBA | January 19, 2017

Preparing to meet my next patient, I pick the next chart up off the counter. ā€œBob Smith,ā€ married middle-aged patient, chief complaint: STD check. ā€œWeird,ā€ I think, ā€œMary Smithā€™s husbandā€™s name is Bob, too.

Sustaining Our Joy in Practice

By Autumn Dawn Galbreath, MD, MBA | September 21, 2017

My eldest child left for college this fall, having chosen to attend school in Scotland. Yes, thatā€™s right. Scotland. Itā€™s a long way away. Itā€™s also a place I had never previously visited. We went on a family trip to Scotland in Marchā€”partly to visit the school he now attends, and partly to have one last bang-up family vacation before we became a family that no longer lives under one roof. On that trip, we had not one, but two, flat tires on our rental car. A consequence of our struggles driving on the left side of the road, perhaps?

Christ with Us: Practicing Christ-like Presence in an Age of Burnout

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

One week into a rotation in the Surgical Intensive Care Unit (SICU), I found myself dreaming about the hospital. I was not dreaming about saying the wrong thing on rounds, but I was dreaming about our patients: Mr. Brownā€™s wife when sheā€™d been told he may not survive his third surgery this admission; Mr. Thomasā€™s mom crying because she felt responsible for how heā€™d ā€œturned out.ā€ I told an attending I trusted that I was distressed by how much I was carrying patientsā€™ stories with me, and she graciously admitted to me sheā€™d struggled with the same thing early on in training. The solution, she said, is to not get so attached. ā€œThatā€™s how you burn out,ā€ she said.

Growth Spurt

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

Sometimes reality is far more awe-inspiring than anything even the most imaginative of writers could dream up. Decades ago, the idea that a woman could become pregnant with her adopted child seemed like science fiction. However, reproductive medicine has long since crossed biological boundaries in ways that once seemed impossible, creating complex problems that require morally sound, technology-driven solutions. Since 2003, the Knoxville, Tennessee-based National Embryo Donation Center (NEDC) has been the national leader for one such solution: embryo donation/embryo adoption (ED/EA). The NEDC specializes in honoring life in its very earliest stages and facilitating pregnancies for women who want to carry their adopted children. And these days, the ministry is busier than ever, adding new initiatives and team members to expand the quality and scope of its life-affirming work.

Feed My Sheep

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

As Christians in healthcare, we are called to take our faith into the workplace, whether it be in a clinic, in a hospital or in academia. My journey in medicine led me from the clinic into academia. I actually consider myself an accidental academician who never meant to end up in charge of training a portion of the physician assistant workforce. This, however, is exactly why I am writing this story, to encourage my colleagues and help them understand who the sheep are, why they need feeding, how to feed them and when to stop feeding them.

In the closing months of 1989, a brutal civil war erupted in Liberia and soon engulfed the small West African country. At the time, T. Abraham Browne was in high school, and the senseless killings forced him and his siblings to flee for their lives to escape the bloodshed. They reached a refugee camp where Abraham would spend the next 10 years.

How to De-stress in Your Distress

By Christian Medical & Dental AssociationsĀ® | February 21, 2022

I picked up the phone to return a call from a message I had received on my office voicemail earlier that day. The call was from a doctor. I called the doctor back and said, ā€œHello, this is Pastor Bert from CMDA returning your phone call, how can I help you?ā€ After a pause, he responded, ā€œThank you for calling me back; I donā€™t know how much longer I can continue to practice in this environment.ā€ As he continued to download the heavy burden he was carrying, I realized the doctor on the other end of the call was in distress. It was a 911 call for spiritual help. Unfortunately, that phone call is becoming all too common and frequent in my office.

First Fridays at the Mortons

By Christian Medical & Dental AssociationsĀ® | March 15, 2021

My husband and I had just moved from Michigan to Texas for my first year of medical school at the University Health Science Center San Antonio. We walked up to the door of a house we had never visited, hand-in-hand wondering what the evening ahead would hold, with unfamiliar people, in this unfamiliar part of the country. As we arrived at the front door, we could hear the sounds of conversation mixed with laughter inside, along with the delicious aroma of cooking pizza tantalizing our taste buds. Another couple our age greeted us warmly while handing us an apron, sending us toward a buzzing kitchen to begin creating our ā€œcouple pizzaā€ for the pizza bake-off contest! Wow! It was a Texas size welcome.

Redefining Essential in the Midst of a Pandemic

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

Am I essential? As general dental professionals, we do not imagine many of you have asked yourselves this question. By choosing dentistry as a profession, it is safe to assume a certain level of job security and financial stability. Though both of those factors may have been initial lures into the field, what inspires us daily to practice dentistry is the impact we have in the lives of our patients, each created in the image of God. As dentists, all that we work to achieve is essential to the health and well-being of our respective communities. And yet, in the midst of the Coronavirus global pandemic, it feels like oral healthcare was deemed non-essential. States recommended dentists limit their offices to emergency patients only. No handpieces were running. No cavitrons were cleaning. Some dentists were even finding themselves unemployed! Oral healthcare seemed low on the priority list, and any momentum we had made in terms of advocating prevention felt lost.

The Dr. John Patrick Bioethics Column: Medicine in Times of Public Crisis

By Christian Medical & Dental AssociationsĀ® | February 21, 2022

Public health and traditional medicine have a serious logical conflict. Public policyĀ decisions must be made in utilitarian terms, unlike medicine,Ā for populations and not individuals. Decisions are made according to which action saves the most lives. All public health policies are tradeoffs in the context of having incomplete data and finite resources.Ā In contrast, patient-based medicine asks, ā€œWhat is best forĀ this patient?ā€

It is a tradition born out of practicality: we had curious toddlers in our house for more than 10 years. But even now, when our youngest is 11, we still keep all the gifts safely tucked away until late Christmas Eve. It is so much fun to see the surprise on their sleepy faces Christmas morning!

Standing for Truth Amid Shifting Government Policies

By Anna Pilato, MA | May 10, 2022

As a former federal government employee, I have observed firsthand how policies affecting our everyday lives are often crafted and administered by unelected federal bureaucrats. Coupled with presidential executive orders, this gives the executive branch a remarkable amount of power. Within the executive branch exists the regulatory framework, which is overseen by a little-known office under the purview of the White House called the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs. Proposed actions from this office are published in the ā€œUnified Agendaā€ twice a year in the spring and fall, giving the public a glimpse into what future regulatory action is on the horizon. Most of us are unaware (some may say blissfully so) of the volume of regulatory and deregulatory actions under development and review in more than 60 federal departments, agencies and commissions across the government. To give some perspective, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) currently has more pending actions than any other cabinet level department, which underscores the sheer size and reach of this titan agency with a budget that surpasses the gross national product of several countries!

It has been over a year since the first diagnosis of COVID-19 in the United States. Due to this pandemic’s effects, our society has experienced limitations in personal freedoms to a level we have never known. Social interactions and work environments have been changed by social distancing, masks, hospital and nursing home visitation restrictions and working from home. Freedom of movement about our communities and the nation has been limited by “stay-at-home orders” and mass travel restrictions. The availability of vaccines provides a sliver of hope but also raises many questions. Issues our society must address include prioritizing equitable vaccine distribution and the potential for coercive mandates on vaccine use.
