10,000 #hscares

The president of HTCNE is Bob Ryan, who joined in on this and many other trips.  Bob is an attorney, a devoted board member and an avid golfer. To make a very long story short, Bob connected with Henry Schein Cares Foundation http://www.hscaresfoundation.org/us-en/sites/HSCaresFoundation/index.asp, and they generously sponsored $10,000 of medical equipment for this trip.  Our Queen of Nurses (ok, that SHOULD be her title, anyway) Debbie Fritz was able to “go shopping” for what we needed in the Henry Schein Medical catalog to spend the money–what an amazing gift!

Below, I’ve included the HSCF mission statement.  It aligns so well with what we do–let’s hope this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship!  Thanks to HSCF for “helping health happen” this week in Colombia.


The Henry Schein Cares Foundation “helps health happen” by expanding access to care for at-risk and underserved populations globally through the support of not-for-profit organizations, institutions, and communities dedicated to increasing the delivery of health education and care. The work of the Henry Schein Cares Foundation targets those with some of the most limited access to care through a focus on three areas: wellness, prevention, and treatment; emergency preparedness and relief; and capacity building.
