Podcast Episode 5: Theology, Public Health, and Social Service

Kathy Boss, MDiv ’20 talks with fellow student, Fernando Ona MDiv ’20, who is also a full-time Associate Professor of Public Health and Community Medicine at Tufts University, about the complicated intersection of theology and the secular, scientific world of public health.

Each of us makes meaning in this world–whether it’s Mother Earth, or Jesus Christ the Savior, or Mohamed, or the Buddha, I feel like we all come to these roads of meaning-making. Part of it is to engage, and authentically engage, and honestly engage, and openly engage, and recognize that we can take multiple tools to try to tend to and address a deep suffering. That’s what I’m getting at here with you and our classmates and our cohort, who I love dearly, is to figure out, okay, there is possibility.
