GHAP in Madagascar
John Carrico knew he would eventually get involved in a medical mission somewhere in the world. It was only a matter of time for the right opportunity to come along. That time came last fall when he accepted an invitation to volunteer his supply chain expertise to a large health care organization in Madagascar.
As Systems Director of Supply Chain Operations at Fairview Health Services, John had finally found a perfect opportunity. Or, one could say, the opportunity found him. The call came from Experienced Resources President and CEO, Mary Christensen. Experienced Resources' relationship with Global Health Administration Partners (GHAP) enables Mary to recruit health care leaders like John who want to volunteer their administrative specialties to health care providers around the world.
