Mobile Medical Disaster Relief, a non profit organization located in Brentwood, TN, arrived in Haiti two days after the earthquake in January 2010 and helped set up and run a large hospital. After caring for thousands of Haitians injured in the earthquake, Mobile Medical Disaster Relief set up mobile clinics in Port au Prince to provide long term care for the devastated citizens of Haiti. Dr. David Vanderpool, CEO of Mobile Medical Disaster Relief, says," We have led teams into Haiti every month since the earthquake and have treated some 16,000 patients. We have worked closely with Children of Hope Orphanage and are returning this month with forty volunteers and presents for all of the children. We will provide free medical clinics, clean water systems, micro finance programs and sustainable agricultural training for the entire region."

Mobile Medical Disaster Relief is supported in part by LAVE MD,, Dr. Vanderpool's medical practice. LAVE MD provides state of the art medical care for the treatment of varicose veins. LAVE MD is a social entrepreneurial company begun in 2003 to fund Mobile Medical Disaster Relief.
