Arnold Gorske, MD
GHO Specialty Coordinator
Arnold Gorske, MD, is coordinator for the “Health Education Program for Developing Countries” which is being utilized by GHO and healthcare organizations throughout the world. The program enables short-term medical teams to have a long-term impact by introducing desperately needed evidence-based health education services to the community. The program also enables the provision of safe, high quality, integrated (community-based) primary care. The goal is to provide the very best lifesaving information necessary for use by team healthcare providers and local physicians, as well for pastors and their communities.
Dr. Gorske began his work with people of developing countries over 25 years ago as a Navy pediatrician in the Vietnamese refugee camps, and has also had over 25 years experience with the development of health education and training programs. He served as team leader for the multinational Red Cross team in Iraq at the end of the first Gulf War, followed by more than 40 short-term medical missions to countries throughout the world. He also provided monthly long-term care to Indian migrant workers at a mission clinic in Baja, Mexico for more than 15 years. He has also had years of training and experience in medical staff administration, quality improvement/risk management, as well as additional positions of responsibility for the accreditation and quality of medical care provided by hospitals, clinics and medical missions.
Although the above information is necessary to establish the credibility of the research, it is important to emphasize that the guidelines contained in the program are not his, but come from the best available evidence-based sources. And even more important, those evidence-based guidelines are now unequivocally confirming the validity of the holistic, biblical approach to health and healing.
