Honoring these Humanitarians

Mildred Crear, BSN

“Working with MedShare has been a tremendous honor. I look forward to championing maternal and child health to those that need it the most”

Mildred Crear was the Director of Maternal and Child Health for the San Francisco Department of Public Health. She has been a member of the Bay Area Black Nurses’ Association (BABNA) since it’s inception in 1971. Currently, Mildred is the Chairman of Nursing and Community Education.

Malia Barshaw, RN

“MedShare is a vital part of the global health safety net and I feel deeply honored to be associated with a such a high caliber and heartfelt non-profit.”

Malia Barshaw is a Registered Nurse with Stanford Healthcare. She began leading medical missions with MedShare in 2017, traveling to provide care in Kenya, Bangladesh, Lebanon, Haiti, and Cambodia.

Paulette Nonga

“With MedShare’s help, women in the rural parts of Africa will not have to experience what I experienced. To me, that’s like seeing bright stars in a very dark sky at night.”

Paulette Nonga is an activist working to alleviate poverty, empower women, and educate young girls. Paulette is originally from Cameroon and has a personal stake in improving maternal and child health for families in medically underserved communities.

Mary Haupt

“MedShare is my happy place!”

All too often, primary healthcare is a weak link in health systems.  That's why MedShare is working to close the gap in quality primary care.  MedShare's goal is to build healthy communities and strengthen health systems both locally and abroad.
