Most specialties, any length of time. Your participation in the work would be helpful and needed any time of the year; it would be especially appreciated during our annual spiritual retreat (dates variable) and the biannual mission medicine conference in Kenya, sponsored by the Christian Medical & Dental Associations in even-numbered years.
