Healing the Children: Bringing Care to Pediatric Patients Abroad


Healing the Children Northern California is the regional chapter of a national organization whose mission is to bring high-level specialty care to pediatric patients abroad. The group is led by Evan R. Ransom, MD, a facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon with practices in Marin County and San Francisco, and Jessica Richman, BSN, RN, an operating room nurse at Kaiser San Rafael. Local volunteers are always welcome and have been instrumental in our success. Past mission sites have included Colombia, Thailand, and Ecuador. Current efforts are focused on the repair of cleft lip, cleft palate, and congenital ear deformities during an annual mission to Ica, Peru. All procedures are performed pro bono and all staff time and medical supplies are donated. Please visit us online to learn more about volunteering.
