[PORTLAND, Ore. – Sept. 11, 2009] Last month, Medical Teams International in Moldova identified people who were in great need of diabetes testing supplies. These supplies include Glucometers, medical devices used to determine the amount of glucose in the blood.
To address this need, Medical Teams International partnered with Abbott Labs. Abbot Labs donated 20 Glucometers and 5,000 testing strips worth nearly $5000.
Cindy Robinson, a volunteer from Seattle, is in Moldova now, hand delivering the supplies to care for 200 people. She will also be training hospital staff to provide physical therapy for injured children.
