Jonathan Bryan

Good day! My name is Jonathan Bryan, and I am a third-year student at the University of Wisconsin – Madison majoring in Neurobiology, Molecular and Cell Biology, and Psychology. I grew up in Appleton, Wisconsin, in a Catholic household. Over this past summer, I began to explore and interact with religious identities beyond my own to gain greater insight into different beliefs and practices. I consider religion, or lack thereof, an integral component of one’s identity and how an individual understands life, ethics, morals, and relationships. As a pre-medicine student, I’m intrigued to learn more about how religion influences health comprehension and care. Interreligious dialogue through the CRGC Fellowship will provide me the opportunity to investigate my own faith, other world beliefs, and how religion influences healthcare, which I will extend into my professional life.
