Honduran mission trumps Vanderbilt position for Erin Keckley

The Tennessean reports in this article that Nashvillian Erin Keckley has resigned her pediatric medical research position at the Vanderbilt Children's Hospital to become a medical missionary in Honduras.

"Friday was her last day at Vanderbilt. She resigned to throw herself fulltime into the life of a medical missionary at the Baxter Institute's James Moody Adams Health Center in Tegucigalpa, Honduras."

"Her plans are to return to Nashville in six months to work toward a master's degree."

"'After that, my goal is to go down there and run that clinic full time,' she says."

"'From the first time I went down there, I truly felt I was exactly where God wanted me to be.'"

Focus: Faith, Health
