HEALTH

The Mary A. Tidlund Charitable Foundation, in partnership with its many global partners, provides medical support with volunteers, doctors, nurses, optometrists, dentists, physiotherapists, and general volunteers to communities that have identified their medical requests. The volunteers fund their own transportation and most of their costs, they are coached prior to traveling as a team to deliver health care in a respectful, understanding, and thoughtful manner knowing that they in return are receiving the same value from the local people and partnerships as they are giving.

The medical teams provide the medical treatment to local patients working alongside the local partner medical team and provide medical education and training. In addition to volunteer work, the Mary A. Tidlund Charitable Foundation funds health programs, medicine and medical supplies, and equipment which are transported by containers to communities globally and the construction of medical clinics.
