Engaging Medical Students & Reaching the Community

At over 2.1 square miles, The Texas Medical Center (TMC) is the largest medical center in the world. With 54 medicine related institutions (21 hospitals and 33 academic institutions), the area is replete with opportunity for gospel influence. At any given time, there are anywhere from 35,000 to 50,000 students enrolled in different institutions. When combined with the fact that Houston is the most ethnically diverse city in the United States, there is ample opportunity to see Christ exalted amidst the diverse population.

Jeremiah Herbert
Area Director

Jeremiah has been with CMDA since January 2022. Prior to joining the CMDA ministry team, he earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Biological Science from Missouri University of Science and Technology before working at Sigma Aldrich as an Associate Scientist for one year. He then began his PhD studies at UT Southwestern Medical Center in 2015, and joined the Dallas CMDA chapter where he was an active member throughout his studies. He also met his wife, Lorena, during her Pediatric Neurology residency at Children’s Medical Center Dallas, and they were married in March 2019. In the course of his PhD studies, he felt the call to full time ministry through opportunities to disciple and mentor fellow students, and he began praying with his wife for an open door into ministry, which lead him to joining CMDA full time.
