Concerned Women for America of Tennessee presents

a night of music and medicine with Dr. Ming Wang

Dr. Ming Wang, a Harvard and MIT graduate (MD, magna cum laude) and one of the few cataract and LASIK surgeons in the world today who holds a doctorate degree in laser physics, will present a lecture entitled "Faith and science, friends or foes?" followed by a music presentation with his Chinese er-hu violin accompanied by classical guitarist Carlos Enrique.

Dr. Wang is currently the only surgeon in the state who performs 3D LASIK (ages 18-60), 3D Forever Young Lens surgery (ages 40-65) and 3D laser cataract surgery (ages 60+). He has performed over 55,000 procedures, including on over 4,000 doctors. Dr. Wang has published 7 textbooks and a paper in the world-renowned journal "Nature", holds several U.S. patents, and founded the Wang Foundation for Christian Outreach to China and the Wang Foundation for Sight Restoration, which to date has helped patients from over 40 states in the U.S. and 55 countries, with all sight restoration surgeries performed free-of-charge.

Growing up in China during the Cultural Revolution, Ming-- a teenager at that time--faced the devastating fate of being deported by the Communist government to the poorest parts of China where he, along with millions of other Chinese youth, would be condemned to a life of poverty and hard labor. Ming learned to play the Chinese er-hu violin as a way to avoid deportation. A chance meeting with a visiting American professor helped Ming come to America, so in 1982, with $50 and a Chinese-English dictionary in his pocket, Ming arrived in the U.S. and began a whole new life. Today, Dr. Wang is the director of the internationally renowned Wang Vision 3D Cataract & LASIK Center, the founding president of the Tennessee Chinese Chamber of Commerce and a co-founder of Tennessee Immigrant and Minority Business Group. He will describe his Chinese Bible project, which may help recruit for God’s kingdom a quarter of the human population.

Describing his 16-year journey with faith and science, Dr. Wang will tell the powerful story of the amniotic membrane contact lens, a breakthrough biomedical technology to help restore sight that he has invented. He will describe how he began wound-healing research to help injured adult eyes, and how he was frustrated at not being able to find a way to conduct fetal research without harming an unborn child. The questions in his heart were “Are science and faith really this contradictory? Should we do fetal wound-healing research without our moral, ethical and faith principles? Or, should we just not do this research at all then, and therefore not being able to advance medicine and improve the quality of our lives?”

What would you do?

This is a unique and powerful talk about growing up in poverty and deprivation, about working hard and appreciating every opportunity that God has given us, about persistence and patience when faced with difficulties and challenges in life, believing that ultimately God ultimately show us the way, His way, about faith and sciences are friends, not foes.
