Where We Go


Where We Serve:

CMDA Upstate teams and individual providers have been to North Africa, Honduras, Brazil, South Africa, Kenya's Tenwek Hospital, Taylors Free Medical Clinic, Greenville Free Medical Clinic, and other rural outreach sites. Many doctors, PAs, NPs, dentists, RNs and other providers also join teams sent out by their local churches.


Why Give to the SC Chapter?

What is CMDA Upstate's vision? To Change Hearts in Healthcare in Upstate, SC! We believe Christian healthcare providers are uniquely positioned to extend care, compassion, and hope in Jesus Christ to others. So, we disciple students and encourage doctors, dentists, and other like-minded providers by nurturing community, spiritual and vocational growth, and supporting family life. Our local ministry depends solely on supporters like you. Would you partner with CMDA Upstate SC today? PLEASE DONATE.
