World House Medicine

I'm training to be a physician and it's been a journey of intellectual, physical and spiritual pursuit. We know that  health is more than the absence of disease or cure it's a about well-being. In today's high-tech, fast paced world quality of life is not always apparent for those who live with convenience and over abundance.  Yet in most of the world where resources are scarce the days are long and hard just to maintain a meager household. It's a challenge for to stay healthy, but it's not impossible.  This blog experience is about a journey and commitment to well-being and whole person medicine.

Dr. Martin Luther King calls for "a world-wide fellowship that lifts neighborly concern beyond one’s tribe, race, class and nation is in reality a call for an all-embracing and unconditional love for all" in his "World House" essay and this concept is the context for the World House Medicine Blog.

In the days ahead I will reflect and share strategies that aim at healing and well-being beyond treatment and cure.  Join me and share your thoughts.
