I am a WiRED Board member...a founding member. We work like crazy, as volunteers, to provide health and medical education to those most in need. We have grown in leaps and bounds and have partnered with organizations that are like minded to serve the poorest, the most unfortunate, those without access to health care, information, clean water, electricity, etc. We now have over 300 health/medical education modules that we provide free of charge to those in need and to other NGO's serving those in need. The money we raise goes to our projects, not to salaries. We have effectively managed volunteers in all aspects of health/medical education to donate their talents in service to those who need them. We have done research on the efficacy of our programs and the results are excellent. You can read about our projects and research on our website www.wiredinternational.org or in various journals. Our other board members include Richard Carmona, former surgeon general; David Alberts, retired Director of the Arizona Cancer Center, Charlotte Feretti, Director, Edelman Institute at SFSU, and many others.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I would provide more funding for the projects as they do God's work and budgetary constraints make it hard to serve new populations.
