DONATE TO PARTNERS IN HEALTH The ASCA Foun- dation joined with Partners in Health

(PIH) of Boston, Massachusetts, in 2014 to help provide surgical care to patients living in poverty throughout the world. Through this partnership, the foundation and individual ASCA members have an opportunity to help support the delivery of health care ser- vices to thousands of people who oth- erwise would not be able to obtain the care they need.

ASCA encourages its members to

support this important global relief effort and thanks those who have already supported the ASCA Founda- tion in its fight to bring health care to those who need it the most.
