Dr. Michael Soderling left his private OB/GYN practice in the US to work in Guatemala, spending 11 years (2001-2012) there. His work included support for Christian mission groups but focused on building several institutions in health, education, and community development. Inspired by the gaps that existed in development in Guatemala, he pursued an MBA in International Development. He is a founding member of what is now the Center for Health in Mission and serves as the director. It creates spaces for mission innovators to collaborate, with a particular focus on strategizing innovations in Christian healthcare services that brings health and wholeness to the nations. He is also involved in catalyzing continued conversation regarding best practices in global health missions, including through the Christian Journal for Global Health which he edits. He is the Lausanne Senior Associate for Health in Mission.
