Readers will learn how to enhance the field of humanitarian medicine:

I would highly recommend this book to all healthcare providers who have an interest in giving back some of their expertise on a short-term basis, as I have, or who are contemplating a more permanent dedication to this very rewarding field, as Dr. Geelhoed has.
— Jon C. White, MD, FACS, Professor Emeritus, George Washington University

Dr. Geelhoed’s story will inspire both past and prospective medical volunteers:

The educational value of his work cannot be overstated. This is a quick read full of valuable principles. It will be of interest to the many young surgeons today who seek a global health experience.
— James A. O’Neill, Jr., M.D., Professor of Surgery, Vanderbilt University Medical Center

And the Mission to Heal model offers hope for a wounded world:

I can think of no other individual who exhibits such remarkable energy, enthusiasm, and incredible devotion to helping the less fortunate. All of these sterling qualities are very aptly revealed in “Furthest Peoples First.” The world could certainly do with more Glenn Geelhoeds.
— HKMurray, World-wide adventure traveler and retired director of Reader’s Digest Asia
