Serving God Through Healthcare


This talk will review why we go on mission in the first place. We will walk through a typical mission trip and what you would expect. We will review the different roles or areas to serve on our missions and who can go on mission with GHO. We will discuss the different specialty focus missions GHO sends in addition to our general medical and dental teams. You will have a better understanding of CMDA’s Global Health Outreach missions.
