Formerly Today's Christian Doctor
CMDA Today (Formerly Today’s Christian Doctor™) is a full-color, quarterly magazine devoted to today’s issues in healthcare, including inspirational testimonies from fellow Christian healthcare professionals, public policy updates, glimpses into the future of healthcare and examples of how to integrate your faith into your practice.
This quarterly journal is distributed to our members. Many of our members tell us their families and patients enjoy reading this award-winning publication.
