AGH LAUNCHES SCRUBS COLLECTION EFFORT IN PARTNERSHIP WITH INTERNATIONAL MEDICAL RELIEF AGENCY GLOBAL LINK

06-07-2012

In an effort to support colleagues serving in resource-poor communities around the world, Atlantic General Hospital partnered with Pittsburgh-based international medical relief agency Global Links to collect gently worn scrubs for donation. The scrubs were collected during National Hospital Week at Atlantic General Hospital and will be shipped to primarily rural hospitals and clinics in Latin America and the Caribbean where the need for basic supplies is great.
