Greg Damhorst

Interfaith activist

Greg Damhorst studied physics as an undergraduate, and now is an MD/PhD student at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, working on his doctorate in bioengineering developing portable, low-cost, point-of-care technologies for HIV/AIDS applications in resource-limited settings.

Greg has been a leader with Interfaith in Action, the University of Illinois’ premier student interfaith organization, since early 2007. Motivated by Jesus’ compassion and ministry of healing, Greg is pursuing a career at the intersection of medicine, technology and service, and he is interested in the role interfaith cooperation will play in the effort to bring health to the people who need it most.

Greg is also a co-founder of Faith Line Protestants, a blog that explores Christian participation in the interfaith movement, especially at the intersection of evangelism and common action for the common good.
