John Boyer, the Chairman of the MAXIMUS Foundation, will soon be joining Project HOPE (Health Operations for People Everywhere) for a Pacific Partnership 2013 tour. For more than fifty years, Project HOPE provides long-term and sustainable health care initiatives around the world. In partnership with the U.S. Navy, the Pacific Partnerships program includes efforts to educate health professionals, strengthen health systems, fight diseases, and provide humanitarian assistance.
John will complete a four-month training exercise and humanitarian mission led by the U.S. Navy’s Pacific Fleet the USS Pearl Harbor in the remote islands of the South Pacific. John will serve as an Operations/Logistics Officer and also as the head nurse aboard the ship.
“I am looking forward to working with the Navy and representing the U.S. abroad,” John shared. “This is a great opportunity to build relations with other nations while providing better knowledge of health care in the remotest areas of the world.”
John also serves on the board of Health eVillages, a program of the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights. In collaboration with Pacific Partnership 2013, Health eVillages will provide mobile apps and devices to share timely medical information to clinicians serving developing nations. John will facilitate the distribution of these important devices.
In the spirit of international aid and national pride, the MAXIMUS Foundation staff wishes John a safe journey and you a happy Fourth of July holiday!
