Saturday evening presentation
Annual Gathering 2019
John Boll, DO, FAAFP
The United States is in a crisis of suffering regarding both chronic pain and addiction. This impacts every level of our society whether by accidental overdoses and deaths, lost relationships, and burnout among families and medical providers. Chronic pain and addiction are characterized by separation from community and family, and in general, a lack of hope for the future. This session will focus on reframing this crisis of pain and addiction in terms relevant to biblical principles such that we can change the dialogue to one of hope.
Dr. John Boll is Associate Director, Williamsport Family Medicine Residency, UPMC Susquehanna, and practices full-spectrum family medicine in Williamsport, Pennsylvania where he also does outreach in the Amish and Plain communities. He is very interested in teaching medical students and residents to prepare them to work in underserved communities.
