Doctor Thomas Dickinson says, “Providing humanitarian healthcare is such a refreshing and even soul healing opportunity to be in a circumstance where we can use our gifts and talents to improve the life of another.” Dickinson also serves as the chief health officer for Orem-based International AIDS Service Kits, a nonprofit that helps provide medical care in the Dominican Republic. Dickinson was instrumental in raising funds to build a free healthcare clinic in Bayaguana, Dominican Republic and he returns there often to provide care and recruit and train local clinicians. In addition to serving his community both here and abroad, Dr. Dickinson served as Revere Health’s, formerly Central Utah Clinic, president for 22 years overseeing its tremendous growth over the past several decades. Says Dickinson, “As important as the actual care or relief of suffering is, the real gift we bring is the gift of hope. The opportunities for expanding our influence in developing countries, beyond the individual patient, are exponential when you consider the opportunities in public health and meaningful employment within the community.”
