John StoeckleAs I seek to live out Christ’s call in my life, I have been guided to a career in family medicine and public health. I want to be a partner with underserved populations, sharing the love of God, and to be a part of a multi-pronged solution to inequity both locally and globally. In Zambia, I was reminded that I have to be intentional every day to allow a generous spirit to be cultivated within me, toward my neighbors in Philadelphia and my neighbors in Zambia.
