MedGyn is moved to hear the mission work of Barbara Kern-Pieh RN who leads a medical team to rural areas of Panama to treat women who lack sufficient medical care. Barbara explained that her team of four medical professionals went up the mountain to provide care to women who would have had to walk over five hours to reach the single clinic available to them. She shared that she setup in the store room because there was tin over the open wall. Furthermore she used a teacher’s desk as her examination table. In four days her team saw over 275 patients many she explained were in a significant amount of pain from the repetitive stress and muscle fatigue of the difficult life they live. Barbara was thankful to MedGyn for supply MedGyn’s LED Speculum to use on her patients who needed medical care.

Aarathi Singh Chief Operating Officer at MedGyn Products discusses How Leaders Can Begin Redefining Women’s Health in Forbes.
“Women’s health is not a lapel pin of a pink ribbon. It’s not an app on your phone or the month of October. It’s not restricted to one age, demographic or geography. It’s not a label or a category. It’s not a singular condition. My mother is in remission from breast cancer, and women’s health is not that either.
Enter the paradox of women’s health: As a society, we uniformly agree it’s important, but many of us cannot define it.”
From Rebecca, Dr. Gordon and CCC Team,
“In the last 4 years, CureCervicalCancer’s 10 “See & Treat” clinics in Vietnam have screened/treated nearly 50,000 women. MedGyn’s generous donation of 4 cryotherapy devices allowed us to expand our impact in 2017 and equip new sites in Vietnam.
Last December, we dedicated the Nam Dinh Provincial Reproductive Health Center to MEDGYN. Today, our team visited the busy screening clinic and assisted the doctors in screening/treating women. We continue to be impressed with their dedication to cervical cancer prevention, and we receive monthly data reports that indicate the hundreds of women screened/treated.
THANK YOU, MEDGYN for your continued support. We value our relationship with you & are so grateful to be giving our clinics the best cryotherapy device available.”
