Medicine as a Ministry by Dr. Jim Shaw


Shaw is the recipient of Whitworth's 2014 Distinguished Community Service Award. As the former medical director of the Providence Center for Faith and Healing, he created an interdisciplinary approach to caring for patients holistically. He founded the palliative care program at Spokane's Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center in 2007, and in 2010 he was one of five physicians to be honored with the Cambia Health Foundation's Sojourns Award.
