Cardiovascular problems have been the leading cause of death in Puerto Rico for decades. The Dr. Raúl García Rinaldi Foundation is a non-profit institution, incorporated in 1993, whose primary purpose is to provide assistance to medically indigent patients with cardiovascular diseases. Its mission is to promote charitable, literary, educational and / or scientific activities and carry out educational research in relation to heart disease and cardiovascular surgery, as well as facilitating access to alternative cardiovascular services for medically indigent patients.
As part of the foundation's internship program for high school students, MDF has donated over 100 stethoscopes to encourage their pursuit of a medical career. MDF Instruments has also donated more than 600 stethoscopes to all first-year students at 4 different medical schools in Puerto Rico and are committed to continue their support over the years.
