Daphna McKnight

Arizona Edition – Daphna McKnight is a resident Chaplin at Yuma Regional Medical Center.  McKnight just got her PhD in Religious Studies with a focus on Buddhist Studies.  Her dissertation focused on compassion meditation.  To give us a better idea of what a Chaplin at the hospital does for patients, McKnight starts by telling KAWC’s Maya Springhawk Robnett how she came to become a Chaplin…(originally aired 08/14/14).
