Who Should Attend?

2010 was a year marked by disaster and ongoing deprivation. The heartening response of many is to donate of their personal time, talent, and treasures to rescue those in crisis. But even well meaning rescue has its limitations. The 2011 Exploring Medical Missions Conference theme is From Rescue To Resilience. This event will emphasize ‘training the trainers’ – equipping both healthcare and non-healthcare participants to in turn empower leaders of marginalized communities to care for their own.

Learning Objectives

At the completion of the Exploring Medical Missions Conference, participants will be able to:

* Promote sustainable health in low-resource communities
* Equip local healthcare personal to care for their own
* Utilize appropriate clinical skills in providing medical care
