Liaoning International General Health Trainers
Providing holistic care for those on the margins
Areas of Service
LIGHT, also known as Liaoning International General Health Trainers, was established in 2003 as a platform for training Chinese physicians in family medicine in NE China. At the time, family medicine was a new concept in China, and this training center was a novel concept, granting trainees in the program an opportunity to practice western-style family medicine, serve needy populations, and practice English, all in a context emphasizing the whole person using a biopsychosocial-spiritual model.
Our long term focus on vulnerable populations includes offering regular clinical services to people living in nursing homes, rural villages, and orphanages, as well as orphans in foster care and children in the community with special needs who live with their families. HIV care and hospice care have also been ongoing clinical activities. With the heavy impact of COVID-19, the population we can connect with most readily is community-based families who have children with special needs.
In addition, LIGHT is now involved in training therapy assistants and social workers. One of our team members has also obtained a certificate in counseling, and continues to work and train with other area counselors. H’IMAGE Doctor International Clinic serves as our central platform for holistic care for people in the community.
