Lee University’s Summer of Studies in Medical Missions Celebrates 25 Years   For the 25th consecutive year, pre-med and health science students from Lee University will travel to Guatemala and Honduras with Summer of Studies in Medical Missions to provide medical care for those in need.  Lee professors Dr. Jonathan Cornett, associate professor of biology, and Pamela Hobbs, lecturer in health science, lead the trip, while Dr. Jeri Veenstra, professor of health science at Lee, serves as the dentist for the trip. SOSMM aims to provide education for pre-health professions majors while emphasizing a personal commitment to Jesus Christ with servanthood to mankind. Along with receiving service hours and course credits, participating students learn more about the need for competent health care workers in poverty-stricken areas. “God has blessed us with so many students committed to integrating their faith with their practice of health care,” said Veenstra. “Our firm belief is that if we are Christians and health professionals, we have a responsibility to the poor to give much because much has been given to us.” The Guatemala team is based in Huehuetenango. The team varies from 12-18 students, in addition to the other dozen providers, family members, and translators, all of whom are led by Pastor Estuardo Clara Vela of Casa de Amore. The team works in clinics that provide primary care for the people in the city and surrounding villages, along with local physicians and dentists from the church in Huehue. The Honduras team serves with Lee alum Dr. Martin Williams, who established the Jungle Hospital in Rio Viejo under his ministry Healing Hands Global (HHG). Students stay at the HHG ministry center, which is also where they set up clinics. Day trips are taken into the surrounding more remote villages. The hospital also provides longer internship opportunities for graduates of the program. “It’s been our privilege for the past 25 years to help our students pursue their callings in the health professions, and it is our hope that they will continue to serve in medical missions throughout their careers,” said Veenstra.
