Chaplain Alexander serves both the Uniformed University of the Health Sciences (USUHS) and the Armed Forces Radiobiological Research Institute (AFRRI). He is available to support all civilian and uniformed students, researchers, faculty members, staff members, and families associated with either institution.
The role of the chaplain at USUHS and AFRRI is unique, as it includes many dimensions of the larger work of both institutions (including research, professional training, and ethical advisement in the context of the health sciences). However, like all military chaplains, Chaplain Alexander is dedicated to upholding the free exercise of religion in our community, dedicated to providing general and supportive psychosocial care to all (with complete confidentiality), and dedicated to helping everyone in the community strengthen their individual conscience for life and work.
The Office of the Chaplain at USUHS and AFRRI also functions as a portal to religious support and religious activities located throughout the region. If you are looking to connect with a faith community in the region, or to attend a faith-based retreat aimed at personal growth or family enrichment, we can help.
Since the days of the first Continental Congress in 1775, military chaplains have served with American forces in peacetime and in war, and they have been available day and night to creatively meet the needs of their people. Here it is no different. On the USUHS campus, the Office of the Chaplain is located just inside of Building C, to the right of the entrance.
