The Lahey Clinic Global Outreach Program was established in 1993 to provide assistance with travel expenses for Lahey Clinic personnel who volunteer their time and expertise to treat individuals in need of medical care, both locally and in developing countries. Lahey Clinic is proud of the humanitarian contributions of many employees who have unselfishly volunteered to travel to developing countries to provide free medical care to people in need all over the globe.
