A Message to Health Volunteers:
As individuals who are passionate about helping the sick and impoverished around the globe, there are many organizations that offer learning that can enhance our effectiveness. Although we may be adept at working in high tech environments, it is wise to consider how to become comfortable converting those skills and knowledge to a poor community where the endemic diseases are much less familiar to us and the clinical environment may not offer electricity or clean water.
I offer this link with INMED as one option for building excellence in volunteering. CME and CNE credits may be obtained and classes are taught on-line and in a classroom setting. If you know of other learning options for United Methodist global health volunteers, please respond to this blog posting.
