INMED ROLE MODEL
This remarkable physician began her career determined to serve people who were most unreached. She honed her skills as a family medicine resident at John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth, Texas and during a 6-month assignment at Memorial Christian Hospital in Bangladesh. In the process, she also married and started a family; but Lani never forgot her first commitment. The Ackermans went on to serve 8 years in the nations of Nepal and Bhutam, just north of India. She taught family medicine in a national university, served in mission hospitals and orphanages in the Himalayas, and created a community project that advanced agriculture and animal husbandry.
Lani will be presenting at the
2009 Exploring Medical Missions Conference. Register today and reserve your spot at the conference, May 29-30, in Kansas City, MO.
