Music and Medicine, A lecture by Ming Wang, MD, PhD
Growing up in China during the Cultural Revolution, Ming faced being deported by the Communist government to the poorest parts of China where he would be condemned to a life of poverty and hard labor. He learned to play the Chinese er-hu violin and to dance as a way to avoid deportation. A chance meeting with a visiting professor helped Ming come to America. While in medical school, Ming became a Christian and since then, his faith has inspired all of his work.
Describing his journey with faith and science, Dr. Wang will tell the powerful story of the amniotic membrane contact lens. He will describe how he began fetal wound-healing research to help injured adult eyes, and how he was frustrated at not being able to find a way to conduct corneal wound-healing research without harming an unborn child.
This is a unique and powerful talk about growing up in poverty and deprivation, working hard and appreciating every opportunity that God has given, and persistence and patience, believing that God has created this world and will show us His way!
