RIGME, Inc. is a non-profit organization made up of pediatricians dedicated to medical education and promoting health for children living in poverty.
“To create and sustain an on-going, resident-driven initiative that strives to provide educational opportunities pertaining to global health, in which its members act as both student and teacher. We advocate for the health and well-being of children living in poverty around the world, with the intention of helping them achieve their full potential, as well as enriching our own medical training.”
Doctors, nurses, medical residents and other volunteers travel with RIGME, Inc. to El Salvador twice a year to provide medical education to local healthcare providers and basic medical services to the children of the rural communities.
It is our hope that RIGME, Inc. will expand to service other areas of El Salvador as well as other parts of the world.
