earthMed Charitable Volunteer Medical Team Visited Ulaanbataar, Mongolia in November 2018

earthMed volunteer medical team continues earthMed's long term medical program support efforts

earthMed physicians, cardiothoracic surgeon John R. Handy, Jr., MD, HonD, director of Providence Thoracic Surgery and co-director of the Providence Thoracic Oncology Program in Portland, Oregon, and cardiac anesthesiologist Patricia Gramling-Babb, led an earthMed volunteer charitable medical mission to Ulaanbataar, Mongolia, in the late fall of 2018, earthMed’s 7th mission to Mongolia.

earthMed has a long-standing relationship with the Mongolian health care system, providing personnel and material support for thoracic and cardiac surgery development. While in Mongolia, our team will provide needs assessment, needed medical supplies, staffed surgical clinics, and participate in thoracic & cardiac surgery and postoperative recovery in collaboration with our Mongolian colleagues.

Our team will operate in the National Center for Communicable Diseases (tuberculosis surgery), and Shastin Hospital/Hospital #3 (cardiac surgery). Due to this multi-year collaboration, Drs. Gramling-Babb & Handy have been awarded honorary doctorates by the National Medical Research Institute of Mongolia and honorary membership in the Mongolian Association of Surgeons.

More details of this sucessful mission will be posted soon.
