Medical Mission Exchange (MMEX)
Often people on medical mission trips see patients who need a visiting specialist, and that specialist might have been available if he or she could have known about the situation in a timely manner. MMEX “seeks to facilitate referrals of underserved patients to appropriate medical specialists in developing countries.” MMEX now focuses on Haiti, the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Honduras, and Belize. Other places may be added later. Regardless of where you want to serve, MMEX research may help. The “links” section of this website has many names of medical missions, free and inexpensive medical goods, conferences, and other useful information. You may have to use Google and type in www.mmex.org to find the website. Paul Gerke, M.D., is the founder of MMEX. You can send him an e-mail through his website.
