Congratulations to Dr. Kimberly Zoberi, MD, a current student in our Executive MA in Health Care Mission, on her recent publication in the January-February issue of Health Progress!

A practicing physician herself and associate professor in the Department of Family Medicine at Saint Louis University School of Medicine, Kimberly was interested in how the principles of Catholic Social Teaching might apply to alternative forms of patient care delivery that many doctors are exploring today.  She initially wrote and submitted the paper for our course last summer (2016), “Catholic Social Teaching: Foundations and Applications for the Healing Ministry.”

Kimberly’s work exemplifies how the Ashley-O’Rourke Center brings together the practice of medicine, mission integration in health care, the study of theology, spirituality, and leadership formation, to have a real impact in the lives of medical practitioners, mission leaders, executives, and -most importantly – the quality of care patients receive.
