Over 25 years ago, Leonardo D. Gilbert, IAMM Founder and Director, traveled to Kingston Jamaica and began forming plans for a medical mission. Working with A.A. Walker, Minister of the Independence City Church of Christ in Kingston, Jamaica and with Loyd Harris, Minister of the McAlmont Church of Christ in North Little Rock, Arkansas, the plans for IAMM came to fruition.
The International/American Medical Mission (IAMM), which is a 501 c3 organization, held its first medical mission in August 2002. The first mission was two weeks long. It was a challenging, but great beginning to fulfilling the vision of establishing a medical mission that would make a difference in the health and well-being of “neighbors” in the United States and internationally.
The International-American Medical Mission (IAMM) to Haiti this February 2-8 was one of the most successful missions. Thanks to Team IAMM for "Bringing Health, Hope, and Healing" to our neighbors in Haiti.
