is a medical student at the University of Minnesota and an MTS student through the TMC Fellowship. He has enjoyed returning to Durham – where he was born – and taking advantage of Durham’s beautiful nature and Duke’s racquetball courts. Brendan’s academic interests lie in postsecular approaches to theology, continental philosophy, and social medicine. He considers the fight for love and justice to be central to the medical vocation, and believes that our work is therefore inextricable from other struggles for economic, ecological, and social shalom. Brendan has recently launched a podcast about social medicine.
