During my time in college, God opened my heart to the spiritual and physical needs of this world. Over the past 30 years, I have served as a foreign missionary, pastor, student worker, and organizational leader with a desire to see people enter into a deeper relationship with God. As a physician-educator, I have advocated for the health of the poor both in the US and internationally: lobbying for universal health coverage, providing innovative access for rural Californians, training health care workers locally and internationally, and developing resources promoting healthy communities. My hope in teaching is to pass on to my students a heart for others – that God will build in them a radical and enduring love for their neighbors both locally and around the world.
