- Global Health Outreach
We welcome physicians, dentists, pharmacists, optometrists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, first responders, dental hygienists, dental assistants, physical/occupation therapists, students, logistics (non-medical helpers), and a trip photographer/videographer on all of our general medicine and dentistry trips.
We are blessed to provide primary medical and dental care to the nationals in Siguatepeque, Honduras. This team will be led by GHO team leaders Evan Nix, Pharmacist and Nate Bernard, our Atlanta CMDA Area Director
We will be hosted by the Iglesia Bautista Emanuel (Emmanuel Baptist Church) in Siguatepeque, Honduras that is pastored by Melvin Romero. This is the home church of Tina Cedillos, who has served as our GHO Lab Tech since the early years of GHO ministry in Honduras, that initiated back in 1999. There are several other Baptist churches who will partner with Melvin and his home church to host our GHO team. Siguatepeque is home to the well-known Hospital Evangelica, founded by the Central American Mission. This hospital is now a self-sustaining (a very good thing) but requires payment up front for any services. So most people in Siquatepeque have to travel to Comayagua or La Paz to get government health care they can afford.
Our team will fly into San Pedro Sula and ride a bus to Siguatepeque, a two hour trip. Siguatepeque is at 3.600 feet altitude and offers a cooler, mountain setting. After a great week of ministry in Siguatepeque, we will explore some of the flora and fauna of Lago Yojoa, the largest lake (79 sq. kilometers) in Honduras.
