Doctor to offer medical perspective on Christ’s passion and crucifixion April 4
DAVENPORT, Iowa — Dr. Timothy Millea, an orthopedic surgeon who is co-founder and current president of the St. Thomas Aquinas Guild of the Quad Cities, will present “The Passion and Crucifixion: A Medical Perspective” on Thursday evening, April 4, at Denning Hall of St. Paul the Apostle Church here.
“This presentation is an anatomic and physiologic perspective on the medical condition of Jesus from his arrest to his death,” according to the St. Thomas Aquinas Guild, a chartered guild of the Catholic Medical Association. Dr. Millea described it as “intended for a lay audience with minimal medical-ese” and hopes it will fortify the Lenten journeys of those attending.
Open to the public with no admission fee, the talk begins at 6:30 p.m. at Denning Hall, 916 E. Rusholme St. in Davenport.
Dr. Millea graduated from the University of South Alabama College of Medicine in 1986 and completed his orthopedic surgery residency and spine surgery fellowship training at Southern Illinois University School of Medicine in Springfield. He is an active member of the Catholic Medical Association, and serves as its Iowa representative on the national organization’s Health Care Policy and Regional Director Representative committees.
