Global Medicine Outreach and Study
LUCOM in collaboration with LU Send helps to provide medical care in underserved communities locally and around the world. Together, it is our goal to reach out to communities that have little to no access to medical care. We seek to enhance collaborative medical education, assist local and international physicians, and encourage the promotion of public health in partnering countries.
LUCOM has been involved in multiple medical mission outreaches over the last year.
Our students have been regularly involved in the Lynchburg area in both a local food distribution ministry and in mentoring and teaching healthy habits to young people. Our students have also had practical experiences in medical missions both in Africa and Central America.
Scripture states: “Declare His glory among the nations, His marvelous works among all the people,” Psalm 96:3 (ESV).
LUCOM believes the best way to fulfill this mission is to reach out to those who need the most assistance.
Future dates and opportunities for Global Medicine Outreach and Study will soon be announced.
