Mission Trips

Show Me Your Stethoscope is committed to supporting communities that are in need of nursing and other health care. We are sending members on Mission trips to Haiti and Ghana in fall of 2016, as well as 2017 spring and summer trips.

Since travel and other costs to attend these trips are completely self funded, SMYS has created a fundraising site for each trip that will benefit all of our attendees. Please help support them by donating here.

Haiti Medical Mission Trip October 2016

The SMYS medical mission trip to Jeramie, Haiti is being led by SMYS member and Nurse Connie Landis. Connie has led many trips to Haiti and has a love and passion for the people of this country.  This 10 day medical mission trip is sure to be an opportunity of a lifetime. This trip can only accommodate 12 participants.  We hope this will be the first of many trips to this country which could desperately use our support.
