M3 Conference Recap

Held in Houston, Texas each year, the M3—Mobilizing Medical Missions—Conference reaches around the world to touch the hearts and lives of people in need. M3 is designed to bring together doctors, nurses, dentists and other health care professionals, as well as anyone who has a desire to use their skills to improve health care in the developing world. This works hand in hand with MBF’s Mary K Center for Global Nursing Development (MKCGND), as the mission involves improving nursing education and empowering nurses in low-resourced countries to serve as leaders.

Caitlin and Dori, two MBF staff members, sharing the mission and vision of MBF with an M3 attendee.


MBF was happy to support M3 as a sponsor, and in an effort to unite nurses and nursing students in mission, MKCGND held a forum during lunch last Saturday for those in the field. Lunch in hand, 45 health professionals and students came together to learn from one another as Lisa Cole, Director of MKCND facilitated the conversation. Great connections were made as their stories were shared.
