DR. CHEESEMAN TALKS RELIGION & POLITICS, PART 3
In part 3 of my conversation with Dr. Melissa Cheeseman, we learn more about her life. Dr. Cheeseman is a veteran of the military. She spent 4 years in active duty with the Air Force, then came back to KY to complete an emergency medicine residency at the University of Kentucky in 2001. She has transitioned from private practice and now practices full-time at the VA Hospital in Lexington, KY.
Dr. Cheeseman has been involved in Christian Ministry for many years. She became of follower of Christ through Young Life as a young adult. She was on the teaching team at Crossroads Christian Church in Lexington for 15 years. She became involved in Outward Focus Ministry, including Mission Ministry.
Dr. Cheeseman and her husband, Jeff, founded the Wellspring Prayer Center, a prayer center in downtown Lexington. She’s also on the board of a nonprofit called, Lane of Roses, a faith-based organization that encourages and empowers young women. She continues her ministry through Compassion International and medical mission work in other countries.
We also discuss how her faith has influenced her medical career and guided her over the years in our conversation.
Dr. Cheeseman is a dynamic and multi-dimensional person. She has always provoked thought in me and inspired me to consider ideas beyond my comfort zone. I believe she’ll have the same effect on you as a listener.
