2011 INMED Theme: From Rescue To Resilience
September 17th, 2010 by INMED
This year is one marked by disasters and ongoing deprivation. Just consider Haiti’s earthquake, Pakistan’s flood, and Zimbabwe’s chronic crisis. The heartening response of many is to donate of their personal time, talent, and treasures to rescue those acute distress. Just look at the thousands of healthcare professionals volunteering for short-term medical missions! But even well meaning rescue has its limitations. As we move towards to 2011 Exploring Medical Missions Conference, INMED will be illuminating those modalities that build more resilient communities. These often include economic developing, improvements in basic literacy, and particularly effective health interventions. Please join with us this year in discovering your personal role in moving the world’s most marginalized people toward self-reliance.
