NPR Special: Science and Religion (featuring the Clinic for Special Children)
Posted on November 20, 2017
National Public Radio (NPR) featured the Clinic for Special Children in a special program that investigates the unique roles science and religion play in modern medicine across different populations, including Amish and Mennonite communities. A Mennonite patient family seen at CSC, the Leinbach family, talks about their emotional journey through their daughter’s diagnosis with Maple Syrup Urine Disease to her treatment and participation in scientific research studies. Starting at 17:20 – 24:30, listen to Dr. Kevin Strauss (CSC medical director) and Adam Heaps (CSC executive director) talk about how CSC works to bridge the gap between science and religion in the Plain population, bringing critical medical and technological services to an underserved population.
