Neuroscience, Personalized Medicine and Faith


Did you catch my discussion with neurologist Jay Lombard on The Listening Program® Radio a couple weeks ago?

It was a fascinating conversation. And, you can enjoy the podcast here.

About the program

Neuroscience provides amazing insights into the complex biology of the human brain, but can it do more? Is neuroscience also a gateway to inner being? And, can there be common ground between neuroscience and faith that are not mutually exclusive?  Both science and religion seek truth and meaning, and Dr. Jay Lombard postulates that science plus faith equals consciousness. In this episode of TLP Radio Alex Doman and his guest neurologist and author Jay Lombard explore Dr. Lombard’s fascinating career, how the personalized medicine research he is doing at Genomind is improving lives, and the intersection of neuroscience and faith.

No Dinner Plans



The following is a statement that was made for the Unitarian Universalist Church of the Larger Fellowship upon the news of the “No Indictment” decision from the Grand Jury examining the case against Darren Wilson in the murder of Michael Brown.

The tragic irony of the grand jury decision from Ferguson, Missouri coming so close to the Thanksgiving holiday is inescapable. We should be preparing dinner, not a cultural war. In a metaphorical sense, we should be talking about how many more people we can put around the table, not how many more people will be turned away. This ongoing struggle between black and white is a global disgrace and the combination of this decision and the deluge of news that we sift through also highlights how we are asked to “choose” where we put our attentions for justice. You see, the media and the ignorant would have us believe that…

Jake's Journey with Apraxia

Please welcome Kelly Pinkham today. When I first exchanged emails with this mama and then later talked to her on the phone, I knew what an asset her story would be to apraxia parents and SLPs. Kelly will be sharing her son’s journey with apraxia and her experience with The Listening Program.  

In 2013 my son Luke was two years old and he only had five words. His father was “Daddy” and I was also “Daddy.” My husband and I often said we felt like we were missing out on hearing his sweet voice and all that a two-year-old should say. In December of that year we decided to have Luke evaluated.

The morning of our meeting my eye began to twitch. I suppose this was mothers intuition, I somehow knew that the news to come was not going to be good. And then confirmation came…. my baby did…

The ball

What a lovely experience to have had, one that will stay with you always I’ll bet. If only we could all really see one another, the world would be a far better place


10329768_716150325094821_7199080986703226583_oLooked for our lost tennis ball in the grass for an hour. Seriously.  I needed it back. To throw for my dogs. It was there somewhere.

I didn’t watch it land. I threw badly and then between all of the out-runs and circling and shouting we lost sight of it. Dang.


We looked and looked. No where. Dang dang dang

Then to my great annoyance I watched a very elderly gentleman and his very elderly golden retriever find it. I  started to set out on a fast path to walk him down and take our ball back. Excuse me I would say, “That is our ball, ours.” because we needed our ball! And mineminemine.

Im kind of an ass.

And then I stopped. I don’t know why.

I stopped while my dogs circled around me and then moved just ahead to turn back and stare at me. And I watched the man…

An OB/GYN writes to George Will about college rape

George Will and every man who thinks like he does needs to read this

Dr. Jen Gunter

Dear Mr. Will,

I read your recent column on the “supposed campus epidemic of rape, a.k.a. sexual assault” and am somewhat taken aback by your claim that forcing colleges to take a tougher stand on sexual assault somehow translates into a modern version of The Crucible that replaces witchcraft with rape hysteria.

I was specifically moved to write to you because the rape scenario that you describe somewhat incredulously is not unfamiliar to me. Not because I’ve heard it in many different iterations (I have sadly done many rape kits), but because it was not unlike my own rape. The lead up was slightly different, but I too was raped by someone I knew and did not emerge with any obvious physical evidence that a crime had been committed. I tried to push him away, I said “No!” and “Get off” multiple times,” but he was much stronger and suddenly…
