The CMDA Fall Banquet is a very encouraging annual fund raising event where guests will hear about the CMDA ministry and how the Lord is using CMDA to impact doctors and students lives here in Memphis and around the world. Guests will also hear about the mission trips that CMDA Memphis will be leading as well as testimonies from students and doctors involved in the ministry.

Guest Speaker: Rick Donlon, MD, grew up in New Orleans and graduated from Texas Christian University in 1986.  He completed medical school at LSU-N.O., and a combined Internal Medicine and Pediatrics residency at the University of Tennessee, Memphis.

In 1995 he and three medical school classmates opened Christ Community Health Services, a primary-care health center for the poor in Memphis’ most medically under-served neighborhood.  CCHS grew to include eight health centers, four dental clinics, and a family medicine residency program that provides over 170,000 patient visits annually.  Since 2003, CCHS has sent long-term medical missionaries to unreached people groups in Central and South Asia and North Africa.

Rick and his co-founding partner, Dr. David Pepperman, left CCHS in mid 2014 and founded Resurrection Health, a Memphis health ministry committed to glorifying God and expanding the Kingdom of Jesus through living, working, and planting churches among the poor in the US and among unreached people groups around the world.

Dr. Donlon is currently the Interim Director of Neighborhealth.  He and his wife Laurie and their seven children live in the Binghampton neighborhood of Memphis, where he works and serves as an elder in their house church network.
