The chapter collects unused, discarded medical supplies from local hospitals (such as St. Joseph’s and Eastern Maine Medical Center), relocates, sorts and packages the material at the Portland Warehouse where it is then ready to be shipped to developing nations or be taken on a medical outreach trip.
Medical outreach trips occur during the academic winter and summer breaks. The chapter tries to fundraise for these trips through events and grant proposals.”
