Founder and Executive Director



Ten years ago, Dr. Decker Weiss launched Global Medical with two goals: 

1) Provide medical care in regions of intractable conflict and poverty. 
2) Perform research on why these areas have been intractable to decision makers so world-wide policy can change to give these populations a chance at prosperity. 

Since then clinics have been performed in conflict zones in Iraq, Ukraine, Syria (Jordan) and in areas of chronic need such as the Thailand/Laos border, Haiti, the Dominican Republic, Viet Nam, and more. Dr. Weiss even had a patient in Iraq who went on to win a Nobel Prize. 

In regards to research, his data generated in conflict zones and orphanges has been presented in some of the worlds finest institutions and to world leaders including a presentation at Oxford Universities College for the Resolution of Intractable Conflict. (CRIC) 

                                           All without one dollar going to salary. 

Margret Mead may have summed it up best when saying: 

       Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the                                   world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.

Global Medical is making the change in the world 1 person, and 1 dollar at a time.
