The Summit is intended to be a strategic meeting of healthcare mission leaders. It is intentionally designed to foster communication and collaboration among those with responsibility for running global healthcare ministries. We also will welcome leaders of Christ-centered academia, counseling, preparation, and support organizations. International invitees will include Christian NGO leaders, prominent pastors whose churches are engaged in healthcare, mission hospital leaders, and emerging generation members who are mission-minded and working in healthcare.

If you have attended the Summit before, you know how valuable this meeting is for fellowship, networking, strategic planning, and cross-pollination of best practices. If you are considering attending for the first time, let us assure you that we are planning an event which will challenge your thinking and allow you to discuss today’s most pressing issues and opportunities in global healthcare missions. Registration and lodging details to follow. Please direct any questions to Patricia@MedSend.org.
