Supporting Students at UB and

WNY Colleges.

OUR VISION

The Christian Medical and Dental Associations of WNY exists to cultivate community centered on the intersection of medicine/dentistry and faith in Jesus.
As a result, We are a community of health professional students, residents, faculty, staff, practitioners, and friends who are fascinated with Jesus and are curious about what his life, death, and resurrection mean for us, for the practice of health care, for holistic healing, for our study in the University, and for our work in the world.
