The Annual Meeting is always a time for global connection among healthcare professionals from around the world. The initiative to collect donated medical supplies and devices aligns directly with the work and focus of AAO-HNS/F, our members, and that of the global specialty, to serve patients. AAO-HSNF selected MedShare as the 2018 Annual Meeting outreach recipient because of its history in reaching underserved populations and the extent, depth, and impact of their work as well as its location in Atlanta, the host city of the AAO-HNSF 2018 Annual Meeting & OTO Experience. This collaboration allows multiple ways for our members, attendees, and non-attendees to get involved in this extremely crucial effort.
Throughout its 20 years of impact MedShare has:
- Collected over $207 million worth of life saving medical supplies and equipment
- Diverted over 3.6 million cubic feet of reusable medical products from local landfills
- Received medical supplies and equipment from hundreds of hospitals and corporations
Donations for this initiative will be accepted by MedShare through December 31, 2018. But don’t delay. Join the Otolaryngology United for Global Patient Care effort of humanitarian giving and make your donation to MedShare today!
