MEDICC is a great source of information about what one small nation is doing that we in the US should be doing to make the world a better place for humanity. The US sends missiles; Cuba sends doctors. MEDICC publishes well documented article about what Cuban doctors are doing, making it more likely that more people will insist on our country following their lead.

Medicc represents what is probably the most important relationship between the US and Cuba in 55 years. While others play politics, Medicc works to save lives in both countries by facilitating access to information and collaboration between those in the health and medical fields of both countries.

When Hurricane Sandy struck in Santiago de Cuba, destroying thousands of houses and leaving many more Cubans in dire need of medical supplies, MEDiCC was one of only two institutions that I was able to contact that was raising emergency funds for the stricken. Because of its ability to develop a relationship based on trust with the Cuban government, MEDICC was able to ship aid quickly where it was most needed.

I have been a member of the board for 15 years and Editor-in-Chief of the organization's open access medical journal, "MEDICC Review" for about 5 years. I'm particularly proud of the journal's staff and contributors for helping to bring the accomplishments and struggles of the Cuban National Health System to international attention. Cuba's successes in improvement of health status in an environment of very limited resources is a beacon of hope for much of the developing world. MEDICC's ability to help others understand the principles of the Cuban approach has contributed to the improvement of health in many other countries.

Joining the Board of Directors of MEDICC has been an inspiring experience. I have rarely worked with a staff as dedicated to and motivated by the goals of the MEDICC mission. As Chair of the Finance Committee, I also can vouch for the integrity of the budgeting and accounting system, one that carefully considers every dollar spent to accomplish the MEDICC mission. There can be no doubt that MEDICC has contributed to promoting the health of the Cuban population as well as the population's of other countries through their support of a medical model that emphasizes preventive health measures.

MEDICC allows us to cross the political divide between the US and Cuba, so that health professionals and all Americans working towards better health and health equity can share experiences with Cuban colleagues and communities, and also bring back lessons from the Cuban experience--a country that has the lowest infant mortality in the developing world and many health indicators on par with the US at a fraction of th cost. MEDICC also publishes MEDICC Review, indexed in Medline and Thomson/Reuters, the only English-language journal regularly featuring results of Cuban research on health strategies, new vaccines and medicines, and clinical findings--and the journal publishes other authors mainly from developing countries. MEDICC is unique, effective, and worth supporting.

MEDICC is an organization which is uniquely impacting healthcare practice in this country. It serves as the major conduit of information and shared lessons between the US and Cuban healthcare systems through its peer reviewed medical journal and educational trips. MEDICC also contributes significantly to building a culturally-competent, diverse healthcare workforce through its support of US medical students enrolled in ELAM. MEDICC supports and facilitates collaboration within communities that can directly impact health outcomes and quality of care for community members, through lessons learned from Cuba. It is, in all respects, a truly wonderful organization that merits national recognition.

MEDICC provides an opportunity for health professionals and learners in the US to learn from and share experiences with those who work and learn in the Cuban health care system. The organization is dedicated to high-quality interactions between and among those whose interest is focused on improving the health of populations.

MEDICC challenges us to think globally about the right to health and the lessons to be learned form resource poor settings such as Cuba. Despite resource limitations Cuba has achieved much with regards to medicine and public health. Given the global economic crisis and US health reform a page may be taken from the Cuban experience about how to efficiently and successfully serve the populations whose health we seek to improve as health professionals.

MEDICC not only publishes an excellent public health journal and creates the exchange of public health ideas between the US and CUba, it also supports US students and alumni of the Latin American Medical School (ELAM, for its Spanish acronym) so they may return home and work in underserved communities as physicians.
