Special Events Internship
Surgeons of Hope
Surgeons of Hope is a 501c3 registered organization based in New York City.
It is an unconscionable loss that a child dies anywhere in the world from a heart defect due to lack of resources for proper care, when a child living in the most remote area of the U.S. with the same heart defect would be easily cured. Surgeons of Hope seeks to narrow that disparity by living up to its motto: “It’s Not What We Bring. It’s What We Leave Behind.”
