Dr. Tony Stringer has been a frequent and favorite guest speaker at UUCO, and it is a pleasure to welcome him again. A lay minister and long-time leader in the UU Congregation of Atlanta, Dr. Stringer has also served as a lay minister for the Emory University Unitarian Universalist Student Association.
Tony believes that his calling is to a ministry of diversity. He likes to work in the space where people of differing cultures, perspectives, and orientations meet and is interested in the intersection of science and religion. He draws personal spiritual inspiration from religious humanism and religious naturalism, and for several years has been engaged in the study of the traditional religions of West Africa.
In his 'day job,' Dr. Stringer is a Professor of Rehabilitation Medicine and is Director of the Division of Neuropsychology and Behavioral Health in the Emory University School of Medicine. In his professional life he provides diagnostic and rehabilitative care to persons with brain injury, stroke, and epilepsy and does research on brain recovery of function and rehabilitation outcome.
