NEW YORK (CNS) — In early March, I sat with two other New York City emergency medicine colleagues as part of an interfaith sharing at Fordham University, “Where Faith and Medicine Intersect.”
A Jewish physician, a Muslim physician assistant and I, a Roman Catholic religious sister and physician assistant, shared the moments where our faith intersects in our medical practice. Our hospital in New York City serves the underserved. We spoke of the importance of prayer and how important it is in our work every day. A cycle of prayer, ministry, prayer kept us grounded in the cases we encountered.
