RESOURCES FOR MEDICAL MISSION TEAM MEMBERS
HMMW's Trip Committee identifies and prepares documents to serve as resources and references for all of our medical mission volunteers. All documents may be found here on the HMMW website, or may be requested from HMMW staff. Each team member is responsible for carefully reading and understanding guidance, procedure and policy documents prior to departure. Questions may be addressed to the Team Leader(s) or HMMW Executive Director. Suggestions are welcome and encouraged.

RESOURCES FOR MEDICAL MISSION TEAM LEADERS
Together with all of the reference documents for medical mission team members, these additional documents are intended to serve as tools and support for team leaders. All reference documents are reviewed regularly and revised as needed under the direction of the HMMW Trip Committee. Reference documents may be found here on the HMMW website, or may be requested from HMMW staff.
Team Leaders, even those who have led HMMW medical mission teams in the past, should carefully review and understand these documents prior to departure. Some guidances may have changed since leading previous teams. Co-Team Leaders are encouraged to consult with each other to gain common understanding of applications. Questions may be addressed to the HMMW Executive Director or Trip Committee Chair. Suggestions are welcome and encouraged.
