Medtronic: Critical Philanthropic Support at a Critical Time
A global pandemic creates a massive ripple effect. Medical equipment shortages. Job loss. Food insecurity. Economic hardship. Those hit hardest are frontline healthcare workers and underserved patients and communities. Current data also suggests a disproportionate burden of illness and death among racial and ethnic minority groups.
Beyond ramping up production of lifesaving ventilators and ensuring the flow of critical medical devices to hospitals, Medtronic and the Medtronic Foundation moved quickly to contribute to COVID-19 relief efforts. Focused on scalable and sustainable impact, collaboration with nonprofits around the globe was key.
