Barbara Campbell

Executive Director, Healthcare

Barbara Campbell graduated from Pharmacy school at the University of Minnesota in 1993 and has worked in pharmacy operations and management for over 20 years.  Over this time she developed an interest in working with individuals to provide real, lasting changes to health and well- being that go beyond medications.  This led her to continue her education and  in 2008 she completed her certification as a clinical nutritionist.

In 2010, she had the opportunity to serve in Haiti right after the devastating earthquake. This was truly a life changing experience. Fueled by her faith and desire to follow God’s direction for her life, she continued volunteering by leading medical mission trips to Haiti. In 2012 she accepted a position with Mission of Hope as their Director of Medical Operations.  For 5 years she gained much valuable experience working in resource challenged areas and developed a passion for supporting local healthcare professionals.  Knowing that poor health hinders a person’s ability to fully live life and maximize potential, she has the desire to see high quality health care available to everyone.

Barbara joined the reLink Global Health team in late 2017 and was very excited for the opportunity to take what she has learned and work toward implementing lasting changes in healthcare delivery throughout the world.  She brings with her the strong desire to work with organizations in developing high quality, sustainable healthcare delivery systems.
