Adventist University of Health Sciences Podcasts

“In the Beginning was the Word...the Word became flesh and dwelt among us…” for those of us at Adventist University, words mean more than just what we speak. We believe that long ago, words created the world, and since then words continue to create life in both ourselves and in others. Which is why we started this project, inspired by StoryCorps, to capture the words of our students, faculty, and staff. Words that in different ways, describe this ministry we call healthcare.
