Here in Lubbock, quality health care is easy to come by. So it was a no-brainer for several health and business professionals to come together to form Purpose Medical Mission.

The organization sends medical professionals across the world to build and train for long-term medical care in under-served communities. The group's original project involved building a medical facility in Cameroon, Africa. 

During an interview on Good Day Lubbock, Dr. James Burke explained how much of an impact it has made. Click on the attached video for the full interview.

To help make these journeys possible, Purpose Medical Mission hosts a gala each year. Tickets to the "We're into Something Good" Gala on March 1st are going fast. Entertainment for the night is Peter Noone and Herman's Hermits. Click here for ticket information.
