Charlotte, North Carolina (PRWEB) September 24, 2013
Recently, well-regarded otolaryngologist and cosmetic surgeon Dr. Paul Drago proved his commitment to the community by volunteering through the Charlotte Rescue Mission. Dr. Drago has been serving the medical community for the better part of the last 20 years, and is always seeking new ways to use his talents to help others.
The Charlotte Rescue Mission (CRM) provides essential services for the homeless, as well as those suffering from the perils of addiction. In addition to offering short terms goods such as food, clothing and shelter, the Christian effort works to promote physical, mental and spiritual health.
Established in 1938, CRM is funded through private initiatives. It has expanded to include two in-house recovery centers: Rebound, the male recovery facility, and Dove’s Nest, its female counterpart.
All potential volunteers, including Dr. Drago, must first undergo an orientation before beginning their service to the mission. These introductory sessions are held several times a month.
Dr. Paul Drago has a long and storied history of helping patients overcome their medical ailments. He is a triple-board certified physician in cosmetic surgery, facial plastic and reconstructive surgery and otolaryngology, head and neck surgery. In his current role as the Medical Director for the Department of Corrections in South Carolina, he oversees a large medical operation and attends to the otolaryngology needs of those housed by the facility.
Throughout his career, Dr. Drago has given back to the community in a variety of ways. He has contributed to a number of medical publications including the Journal of Urology and the ENT Journal and has also spoken before several prestigious organizations. Recently, he spoke at length to retired NFL players about pioneering anti-aging therapies.
This is not the first time Dr. Drago has exhibited his philanthropic nature. He currently serves as a Board Member of the Stewards of Christ Children’s Homeless Project. Helping children realize their importance, special talents and gifts, the Project provides spiritual and physical aid to children, and helps to guide them towards a successful path, much in the same way that the CRM does.
Dr. Paul Drago has stated his intention to continue serving the Charlotte Rescue Mission for the foreseeable future.
