I’ve always believed that the quote 'Be the change you want to see in the world' should be the driving force in everything we do as a society .
An orthopaedic trauma surgeon with an uncompromising passion for helping others, Dr. Andrew Furey has made a lifelong commitment to kindness and giving back. Growing up in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador, Dr. Furey learned the importance of hard work and empathy from his supportive parents and siblings. He took those values and studied for a career in medicine, ensuring that he would be able to help people in their most vulnerable of times each and every day.
Dr. Furey’s dedication to medicine and philanthropy led him to spearhead the non-profit organization Team Broken Earth in 2010, following the devastating earthquake in Haiti in January of that year. Dr. Furey organized a task force of Canadian physicians, nurses, and physiotherapists to travel to the affected areas and offer medical support and training.
Since that time, Team Broken Earth has grown to include teams all across the country, but that doesn’t mean it takes up all of Dr. Furey’s time. He remains very active in the local St. John’s community, attending and organizing various charity events. He also does work with the Liberal Party of Canada, teaches at Memorial University, and most importantly to him, raises three beautiful children with his wife Allison.
Ultimately, Dr. Andrew Furey’s ambitions lie with making a true positive impact on the world. Helping those who need help most, both locally and internationally, continues to drive Dr. Furey forward.
