Since founding Team Broken Earth, Dr. Andrew Furey has seen his work take him all across the globe. But making a difference in less-privileged countries is not Dr. Furey’s only focus – he also makes a point to get involved locally to improve the community where he lives.
Dr. Furey’s extensive volunteer experience is a testament to his deep commitment to making things better for the people of St. John’s. He currently acts as Co-Chair on the Board for The Jack Hand Foundation, an organization that relieves the financial burden on families with sick children, and also works on the board of Sequence Bio, a biotechnology company that strives to improve the way we treat diseases and develop medicines in this province. Dr. Furey is also heavily involved with Memorial University of Newfoundland, doing what he can to enhance the educational experience of young medical students at the school.
It isn’t hard to find Dr. Furey at local charity events, Liberal party functions, and community events in St. John’s. Dr. Furey’s belief in the immense potential this province has means his hard work will continue for years to come.
