When Helping Hurts: Short-Term Medical Missions
Workshop » MISSIONARY TESTIMONIES
Bob Shim MD
With globalization and the ease of travel, more and more healthcare professionals are engaging in short-term mission trips. Yet, even good intentions are fraught with pitfalls and the potential for causing more harm than doing good. This workshop seeks to explore principles and best practices for healthcare STM trips, drawing heavily upon our 17-year experience with such teams in Central and Southeast Asia.
