Thank you to all the volunteers who helped with the 2013 BEST Medicine Engineering Fair.
We could not deliver such a unique event without you!

Each year, BEST Medicine requires the help of dozens of individuals to ensure that the event runs smoothly. Through generous donations of their own time, our volunteers will help us inform, educate and inspire students from all over Northeast Ohio.

Interested in volunteering for the 2014 fair?  Email to be added to our email distribution list.
