Founded in August 2005, MMI is a recognized 501 (c)(3) charitable non-profit organization focused on the all-around health of impoverished mountain communities and their surrounding areas. Why the mountains? Colorado based, our board and staff share an admiration of the mountains for their tranquility, the endless opportunities they offer to hike and climb, and for the people that have chosen to live their lives alongside them. The mountains provide a home to some of our world’s poorest and underserved populations.
Mountain Medics is a Colorado, US-based nonprofit organization aiming to improve the health and quality of life of developing mountain communities around the world. Our 501(c)3 tax- exempt EIN is 20-3291559
Influenced by our experience, we have been particularly concerned with the poverty and health care situation in Peru, a society with clear inequities within its blend of indigenous Andean ethnic groups. Our first programs at MMI have all taken place in Peru and have attempted to better understand these inequities and ease the differences between racial/ethnic groups in terms of economic status, education, and health.
Mountain Medics International - What We Do
Mountain Medics International facilitates overseas medical mission trips and dental mission trips focused on improving the health and quality of life of mountain communities that provide a home to some of our world’s poorest and under-served populations.
MMI conducts remote medical outreach to research, diagnose and treat ailments of patients in developing areas with poor accessibility to care, that suffer from extreme poverty and lack basic nourishment and hygiene. We collaborate with our communities, local health organizations, schools and governments to understand the best approach to support ongoing public health campaigns.
Projects are supported by our partners and by the contributions of interested individuals, corporations, and sponsoring professional associations, including the ADA Foundation and Rotary International.
