Michelle, our Anesthetist

meet Dr. Michelle White

Position: Deputy Chief Medical Officer
Volunteer Service: 2 years to present
Ship: The Africa Mercy

Michelle joined Mercy Ships on her first of six commitments onboard the Anastasis in December 2005, and her servant’s heart to our cause has been an inspiration. “Mercy Ships combined my love of the sea, love of people, love of travel, love of medicine, and love of Jesus,” she explains.

Michelle is invaluable in the Operating Room, but she is also essential for bringing medical education to the countries we serve. “We serve the poorest of the poor and focus on the patient in front of us,” she says, “but we also work closely with governments to transform healthcare for the better.”
