Emory Cares Day: MedShare
Please only register for ONE trip on Orgsync!
Community Partner Description: Medshare is a nonprofit dedicated to improving healthcare and the environment through the redistribution of the surplus of medical supplies to those most in need. Medshare collects surplus medical supplies and equipment from hospitals, distributors and manufacturers, and then redistributes them to qualified healthcare facilities in the developing world.
Service Description: Help package medical supplies like sutures, dressings, and surgical tools so they can be shared with countries that face shortages at home. You'll also get the chance to tour the facility and learn about circumstances in the countries that receive medical supplies from MedShare.
Note: Don't forget to bring a filled, reusable water bottle! ECD is a zero-waste event. Transportation is provided.
