This year is a very important milestone in the history of the Vellore Christian Medical College (CMC) Foundation, celebrating the Foundation’s 75th Anniversary! CMC’s founder Dr. Ida Sophia Scudder successfully built strong relationships with the Church community. Through the years, CMC’s mission of compassion to all has been catalyzed by these integral relationships within the faith-based community in the United States. Join us in our interactive discussion as we further explore some of the Foundation’s dynamic partnerships with the faith-based community, highlighting unique and mutual ministries that have transformed communities and strengthened the global Church.
