Podcast episode 5: Theology, Public Health, and Social Service
This article and podcast was originally published in The Prophet -- a journal created by and for the students at the Boston University School of Theology (BUSTH) to amplify the voices of STH students by promoting and sharing a range of perspectives on matters of concern including, but not limited to, spiritual practices, faith communities and society, the nature of theology, and current affairs. It serves as a platform for STH students to share their academic work, theological reflections, and life experiences with one another and the wider community.
Kathy Boss, MDiv ’20 talks with fellow student, Fernando Ona MDiv ’20, who is also a full-time Associate Professor of Public Health and Community Medicine at Tufts University, about the complicated intersection of theology and the secular, scientific world of public health.
