Stethoscope Drive !!!
Stethoscope Drive !!!
Mount Sinai REMEDY is currently holding a stethoscope drive to collect old and new stethoscopes and other physical exam equipment to donate across the world to doctors and communities in need, particularly to medical clinics in Central America and the Caribbean where there are dire shortages of medical equipment. We are currently collecting the equipment in the Mount Sinai Gift Shopin the Guggenheim Pavilion Atrium. The Gift Shop has graciously agreed to collect the donations, so please bring any stethoscopes, otoscopes, opthalmoscopes, reflex hammers, penlights, blood pressure cuffs and other physical exam equipment you wish to donated and please place it in the marked "Stethoscope Drive" box.
In today's world of modern medicine, where powerful new advances in technology have revolutionized diagnosis and treatment options, the stethoscope still remains one of the most valuable and commonplace tools at a physician's disposal here in the US. However, there many doctors across the world without access to this basic instrument that we often take for granted. Imagine having to diagnose a case of pneumonia or a mitral regurgitation without a even a stethoscope to aid you. This is a reality for many of these doctors.
Mount Sinai REMEDY is a high-impact student group at Mount Sinai School of Medicine. We are committed to the recovery of recyclable medical supplies and equipment from Mount Sinai Hospital, affiliated programs, and other community health centers. Mount Sinai REMEDY has the full backing of the hospital and school administration. We collect supplies regularly from hospital floors and research labs. We also recover home health care supplies from around New York. We are always looking for more places from which to accept and donate supplies, especially within the hospital.Our donations to date have totalled more than four hundred thousand dollars in value and have have been donated to many places and missions worldwide, from Belize to Honduras to Kenya to Pakistan.
