Over the past 5 years I have worked with MEDICC in many ways. I have been part of the MEDICC's Community Partnerships for Health Equity. Along with colleagues in the healthcare safety net in Oakland, Ca, I travelled twice to Cuba to learn about their successes in healthcare in the face of very limited resources. The visits were very well-organized and informative, allowing us to bring "lessons learned" home to our own institutions. I am now a member of MEDICC's advisory council and have volunteered in other ways with the organization. MEDICC greatly facilitates the understanding by Americans of the significant strengths of the Cuban medical system including the emphasis on primary care and prevention and the merging of public health and the delivery of health care. This provides opportunities to improve our own healthcare system. MEDICC is a very effective organization with an important mission.

MEDICC is a multifaceted organization dedicated to enhancing collaborative efforts among diverse, global communities aimed at better health outcomes and equity for all. My experience in working with MEDICC has been to enhance medical school education for American Indians to become physicians. There is a huge disparity in the number of American Indians physicians in the United State. As former Surgeon General/Medical Director of the Navajo Nation, MEDICC worked in collaboration with the Navajo Nation government to look at innovative partnerships to develop the next generation of Navajo physicians. American Indians share the burden of huge health disparities among minority populations. We will be better equipped to address our health challenges by increasing the number of American Indian health professionals and through efforts such as MEDICC
