Your Chance to Make a Global Impact

Dr. Kathryn Sarnoski, the Director of Education at Contract Diagnostics, is renowned for her deep commitment to global health, particularly through her volunteer work with Guatemala Surgery.

A Journey of Compassion and Service

Dr. Kathryn Sarnoski’s involvement with Guatemala Surgery showcases her dedication to global health, having spent over 20 years providing essential surgical care in Guatemala. Her significant work includes performing life-changing surgeries, like removing a large fibroid tumor from a woman, and extensive pre-operative care. These efforts are crucial in a region where access to affordable and safe surgical services is limited.

Working with Hermano Pedro Hospital in Antigua, she’s part of a larger team that has delivered over 3000 surgeries in 30 years, greatly enhancing the health and well-being of the Guatemalan communities. Her work not only addresses immediate medical needs but also contributes to sustainable health improvements.
