ALL CHURCH FORUM
The Virus, Vaccine(s), and Varieties of Faith
Wednesday, January 20 at 7PM on Zoom
The Pandemic of 2020/21 has upended the world and our lives like few other forces in recent memory. Nevertheless, it propelled profound discoveries, too, that are sure to change the future of medicine, public health and the practice of faith.
Join Rev. Andy, Dr. Joe Glajch and Dr. Rod Kunz who will bring together their vocational experience and expertise on a most timely subject.
Rod Kunz is the Associate Leader of the Biological and Chemical Technologies Group at MIT Lincoln Laboratory, which is in the newly formed Biotechnology and Human Systems Division there. His group views molecular-scale phenomena as playing an increasingly larger role in future and emerging national security challenges…this pandemic being just one example.
Joe Glajch, in addition to serving as our First Church treasurer was The Director of Analytical Development with Momenta Pharmaceuticals where he applied new generation technologies to the development and manufacture of drugs and therapeutics.
