Team Rubicon launched a medical aid operation to assist in on-going Super Typhoon recovery efforts.

MAKING HOUSE CALLS: USING MOBILE MEDICINE TO HELP TINIAN RESIDENTS IN THE WAKE OF SUPER TYPHOON YUTU

Instead of setting up mobile field clinics in specific locations – as Team Rubicon did in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria – our mobile Emergency Medical Team (EMT) decided we need to bring help and aid directly to homebound patients.
