Sarah Buller PhillipsMy time at Herbertpur demonstrated that faith and medicine truly can coexist. This has been a personal struggle for me, as I strive to live my life as a reflection of Christ while simultaneously respecting the sometimes conflicting views of my patients….my time in India provided me the courage and confidence that has been missing from my education.
