Medicine and Technology [part of HCPLive]: Donate your medical textbooks to Operation Medical Libraries Developing countries have a need for more medical textbooks. Can you imagine going through medical school without a single book? How about going through medical school without any lectures, slides, or a computer?

OML exists to shrink the educational gap in all areas of the health sciences in developing countries, which globally face the same problem: doctors and nurses go without the latest professional information they need to provide proper health care to their patients. You can learn about Operation Medical Libraries by clicking here. Here's their mission statement: I personally think the answer to the large education gap in developing countries will get bridged via the use of digital media.
