Stop by to support the launch of Bridge to Health USA, a global, nonprofit organization that provides free dental and medical care to impoverished, rural communities around the globe.

We will be holding a raffle during the event, with all proceeds going to Bridge To Health USA to further support our ongoing medical and dental care, point of care ultrasound (see us in the New York Times! https://www.nytimes.com/2019/04/15/health/medical-scans-butterfly-iq.html) and cervical cancer screening and treatment programs. In addition, there will be a happy hour, food and beverage, entertainment as well as exciting raffle prizes!

THE CAUSE
The Canadian branch of BTH was founded in 2012 by a group of five medical and dental professionals who had spent time in East Africa and recognized a need to help individuals who had never seen a dentist or doctor because they could not afford one.

The organization's aim is to provide sustainable healthcare and continue to have a positive impact on the communities they serve in a cost-effective manner.

Some of Bridge to Health's initiatives include: training local healthcare workers, providing educational outreach to the residents of these communities, screening and treating women for cervical cancer, the leading cause of cancer death death in East Africa and training local healthcare providers to use portable ultrasound to save lives!
