The THSA continues, as a group of unpaid volunteers, to support local health care projects and services. The THSA thanks each of you for your support of our effort to finance, supply, and improve local health care.

The THSA is your local charity for local health care – that is our role and mandate.  Here are some of the projects we recently supported.
