Who Is The Most Famous Person In Global Health?


Who is the most famous person in global health? The question is ironic. By nature,  global health volunteers are largely self-sacrificing and self-effacing. No one enters this field to become wealthy or famous. Nevertheless, inspiring personalities occasionally gain notoriety not through any intention of their own, but through dedicated service. One such man is James Fyffe, RN, MSN – plenary speaker at this year’s Humanitarian Health Conference!


James is a native of Lee’s Summit, Missouri. He lived several years in El Salvador, Central America, serving as a youth pastor. Then, James completed nursing school at Rockhurst University and also earned a master’s degree in nursing education. In 2014 at the Humanitarian Health Conference James met personnel from Bach Christian Hospital in Pakistan. The following year, he and wife Rosie, along with their three children, moved to Pakistan where James taught nursing school through 2019. James often speaks of his desire to combine healthcare, his faith, and his Spanish and Urdo language abilities to make a spiritual and physical impact among people in need. Says James, “I love the opportunity to serve and help others, and INMED has given me the chance to use my talents, abilities and education to do just that.”


Please join James Fyffe and a slate of inspiring leaders at the Humanitarian Health Conference on June 11-12. Participate online or come in-person to Kansas City, and be inspired!
