CMMB’s CEO & President Bruce Wilkinson joined Dr. Mary Leahy of Bon Secours Charity Health System for Faith on the Frontlines, a special livestream event on May 13, 2020.

Hosted by the Sheen Center for Thought & Culture and moderated by Father Matt Malone, S.J. of America Media, the panel explores the role of faith in navigating a medical response to COVID-19.

Some of the topics explored:

  • How are Catholic healthcare workers responding to the unique challenges of COVID-19, specifically caring for/being present to the “whole person” when treatment of this particular disease requires isolation?
  • How do we heal the healers?
  • What medical and faith lessons have we, as a Church, learned from past health crises (Ebola, AIDS, etc.) that can help inform our current situation and that we can offer the wider (i.e. secular) medical establishment?
