Medical InitiativesSince October of 2005, we have conducted annual pediatric medical initiatives to Negril and Ocho Rios Jamaica, and treated thousands of children. Access to health care is fundamental to our quality of life and, it is essential in the daily struggle for survival. Yet, three billion people live without basic health care services. Our goal is not only to give free medical care to children, but to also mentor with local health care providers, so that they can continue to practice in their home countries where their skills are most urgently needed. All of us have a role to play in improving global health by educating ourselves and others about the vast unmet needs, volunteering our time and expertise as health care providers and supporting those who work to make a difference in the lives of others.
