As president of Doctors for United Medical Missions, he taught and practiced medicine in eight countries outside of the U.S. Through his international aid work, John has been instrumental in leading and organizing the many American volunteers in Africa who have touched the lives of Africans in need of medical care.

It does this with a specific objective of developing these systems to become self-sustaining, with a goal that later they will not need international medical missions or any other aspect of Western support.
