In a recent Lakewood Church service, Dr. Paul Osteen shared with the congregation about the last three and half months he spent in northwestern Zambia at Mukinge Mission Hospital. As a missionary surgeon, Dr. Paul spends several months each year serving in mission hospitals, and it is through this service that he was inspired along with his wife, Jennifer, to start the Mobilizing Medical Missions (M3) Conference. M3 is an annual conference with a vision to help people “connect with others, be inspired, and find their mission.”

We are excited to release this 2019 M3 Conference Breakout Session by Dr. Matthew Dacso, Associate Professor of Medicine and Director at the Center for Global Health Education at University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB), entitled “Bonded Through Service – Exploring Synergies between Academic and Faith-Based Organizations in Global Health.”
In this session, Dr. Dacso will discuss how every year, over 1.5 million Americans participate in short-term international faith-based mission trips. Similarly, nearly one in every three medical students participates in a global health elective during their medical training. Meanwhile, the past few decades have seen profound epidemiologic transitions in the global burden of disease complicated by persistent global disparities in the distribution of wealth and human resources for health. The need to address these complex health system issues, coupled with increased interest among volunteers and the ease of international travel, have driven both academic institutions and faith-based organizations to create and expand global health programs. Yet despite significant overlap in their mission areas, these entities frequently work in professional silos. This talk explores the shared values, as well as the challenges and opportunities for developing joint programming between academic and faith-based organizations.
