Synopsis - Why Non-Medical People Should Do Medical Missions

The purpose of medical missions has changed over the years.

It is more than just about treating the patients. 

Health education is as important as the medical treatment.

Medical missionaries are few these days.

Non-medical people should get involved in medical missions. 

This session discusses various areas in which non-medical people can participate in missions.
