Peter Foggin

Throughout his life Peter Foggin has been motivated by a deep sense of mission and God’s personal call. He pursued that call in the world of academia, spending his professional life as a university professor in Quebec, providing leadership to his colleagues, in field work projects, and in extensive research. His field of specialization—medical geography—equipped him to develop a mission of compassion to various people groups, which included northern Canada, Haiti, and Thailand, but his primary focus was China, Mongolia, and the Tibetan plateau.
