Bringing health care to the world’s most remote areas
"I do not want to have to treat a couple hundred people and then have to go, I want to treat thousands and thousands of people. And better than that, I want to be able to provide the people we treat with the capabilities to carry on what they've learned so they can continue to help others after we leave."
- Benjamin LaBrot
Dr. Benjamin LaBrot started Floating Doctors, a nonprofit that travels by sea to provide free health care for people in remote coastal areas. In the last two years, LaBrot and his volunteer team have treated nearly 13,000 patients in Haiti, Honduras and Panama.
