Bridges for Health

BRIDGES for Health stands for Bringing Resources Internationally and Domestically Guiding Educational Services.


Our History

Dr. Long fell in love with medical mission work when she served 18 months as a volunteer health missionary to Colombia, South America 30 years ago. She vowed she would bring nurses and nursing students to communities at risk and help strengthen the health of our communities, one person at a time.

Our Mission

BRIDGES is a nonprofit that brings medical volunteers around the world to serve in free medical clinics and help strengthen communities at risk to support better healthcare services.

​We also provide online educational courses to bridge the knowledge and skill gaps for healthcare professionals. Many courses offer continuing education credits!


Our Values

Human dignity, integrity, education, empowerment

What We Do

We are a group of medical professionals gathering teams of nurses, students, and allied health professionals. Over the past decade, our teams have brought medical services to 13 countries to enrich the lives of both the givers and receivers.
