Graceway Church in Kansas City will host a major health conference April 5-6 with the goal of equipping attendees how to better serve the “forgotten of this world.”
The Humanitarian Health Conference is sponsored by the Kansas City-based Institute for International Medicine (INMED) and will bring together leading experts in the field, offer hands-on learning opportunities (including simulation), provide courses that offer certification upon completion, present excellent networking settings, and equip learners to take the next step in partnering with the world’s most marginalized people.
“Until I attended my first INMED Conference, I was unsure how to utilize my passion for international service,” said past attendee Hayley Stolzle of the University of Kansas Medical Center. “However, I walked away from that first conference inspired, connected, and affirmed in my dream to care for the underserved.
“Each year that I attend this conference,” Stolzle added, “I experience life-changing connections that help me move forward on my path to international service work.”
The conference’s theme is “Equip, Connect, Go.”
INMED is a global health education and training organization that equips and prepares healthcare students and professionals to serve the world’s forgotten. It has operated since 2003 priovides Continuing Medical Education (CME) credit and contact hours to attending physicians and nurses.
“The forgotten of the world are people who live on the margins of society,” the organization’s website says. “Although many remain vulnerable, they each have intrinsic human value. When we partner with them to improve their health, they deserve our very best.”
The conference is a “forum for those who want to holistically serve the forgotten of this world,” according to the website. It’s not only open to those currently working in the medical fields but also aspiring nursing and medical students.
