Boston Cardiac Foundation team - February 2012

Boston Cardiac Foundation (BCF) is a non-profit charitable organization that brings medical technologies and services to less developed countries around the world. The BCF team is made up of physicians, nurses and technologists and performs cardiac procedures such as pacemaker implantation free of charge for patients who otherwise would not be able to afford it.  Team members have been traveling around the globe on charitable missions for over 21 years.

 

Boston Cardiac Foundation team members have preformed over 350 pacemaker implantations in India over the past 21 years. The ability to perform these procedures is in large part by the generous donations made by the major device companies, Medtronic and St. Jude Medical and local charities in India.  These companies have donated over 2 million dollars in equipment and supplies over the past 21 years. 


BCF held a golf tournament in September 2011for its first trip overseas, which was Feb. 12-16 of this year, and is planning another one for subsequent trips. The next golf tournament is scheduled for Monday Sept. 10, 2012 at Bellevue Golf Club in Melrose.

 

Dr. Midha and his BCF colleagues have already received some recognition after earning a spot in the 2011 Limca Book of Records, which is the Indian equivalent to the Guinness Book of World Records, for implanting 11 pacemakers in one day.

 

This year Boston Cardiac foundation plans to support a scholarship for nursing and other medical staff members for education in advanced medical care with the help of Hallmark Health Hospitals.  On June 3, 2012 Dr.Midha participated in the Community Health and Wellness fair in Waltham, MA and lectured on Heart Disease prevention and management.  Summary of the lecture is available on www.bostoncardiacfoundation.org
