Global Partners is now Global and Community Partners

Gundersen Health System’s Global Partners program is now known as Global and Community Partners.

The new name reflects the incredible work done by program volunteers internationally and domestically, including in Central America, Ethiopia, South Dakota and right here in the Coulee Region.

Established in 2008, Global and Community Partners exists to improve the health and well-being of the global communities we serve by inspiring volunteerism throughout Gundersen Health System and local communities.

In 2019 alone, Gundersen staff and community members volunteered to mentor students at Coulee Region schools, provided CPR and Stop the Bleed training in the Allen community on Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota, conducted hundreds of vision screenings in Costa Rica and completed physical exams for almost 1,000 school children in Ethiopia.
