Our Mission & Vision

Our mission is to form and support current and future physicians and healthcare professionals to live and promote the principles of the Catholic faith in the science and practice of medicine.

Our vision is to build a strong community of Catholic physicians, students, and health care professionals who inspire and support one another in our calling to imitate Jesus Christ. Join us!

Founded in 2018, the Cincinnati Guild chose St. Gianna as its official patroness. As a Pediatrician, wife, and mother, St. Gianna is well known for her heroic self-sacrifice for her family. In addition, she serves as a model to us in living out her vocation with great love in her day-to-day activities, finding the presence of Christ in the clinic and in her home, and serving Him through others with joy.

David Rahner, MD: Treasurer

David Rahner MD is a family physician and has been married to University of Cincinnati Medical School classmate Patricia (Tricia) Powers for 30 years. They have been truly blessed with 8 children and 2 grandchildren. Dave and Tricia’s medical work has focused on caring for the indigent and underserved. During medical school, they both did short term medical mission work in Asia. After their residency in Syracuse, NY,  they moved to inner-city Cincinnati where they lived for 10 years and became a part of Crossroad Health Center, a Christian ministry providing healthcare for the poor.  For the last 5 years, Dave has been working for the VA medical center, where he started an outreach program to provide healthcare for homeless veterans.
Although raised Catholic, Dave spent many years as an evangelical and “cafeteria” Catholic.  Dave fully returned to the Catholic faith due to the influence of Saint John Paul II’s Theology of the Body. He loves to share his faith with others and hopes CMA can be an encouragement for all Catholic healthcare professionals to fully integrate their faith with their profession.
