On June 30, 2001, Newsday reported on Dr. Frederick Smith. "As associate chief of internal medicine at North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset [New York], the...56-year-old physician has found that religious faith can help his patients, and he's trying to teach that to a generation of up-and-coming doctors. His 2-year-old course, Religion and Medicine, is part of a growing move to sensitize doctors to the role faith plays in their patients' lives."
