By caring for others, we impact the future
We provide all people with equitable access to safe, affordable surgical care.
Since Nuoy was founded in 2020, we have aspired to expand access to safe, affordable surgical care. Access to medicine and education is a global issue that Nuoy believes can be addressed by nurturing future surgical talent and building a community with alignment of values. We understand the impact that surgery has on patient’s lives because our patients are our community. By working together, we believe that patients will have access to safe, affordable surgical care. As our community’s needs evolve, we continue to evolve to provide support and build capacity.
Our current plans are to first expand locally, then regionally, and finally globally. By committing to the sustainable development of local expertise, Nuoy plans to implement its paradigm by collaborating with long standing partners in other communities.
Phuong D. Nguyen, M.D.
As a first-generation Vietnamese-American born in an Indonesian refugee camp, it has been a life-long drive to give back to my heritage and community. Since my first foray into Vietnam in 2004 as a medical student on a cleft lip education mission, my personal and professional focus has been to improve health equity and access for all global citizens. As a pediatric plastic and craniofacial surgeon, I have seen firsthand the power of reconstructive surgery on the transformation of a patient’s outlook and livelihood. Through Nuoy, we aim to be a resource for our global partners in empowerment and surgical capacity building through long-standing relationships and evolution.
Julien Klaudt-Moreau, MPH
Growing up in rural New Hampshire, I witnessed firsthand the impact that the lack of access to healthcare can have upon the local community. During my first trip to Vietnam, it became apparent that while the factors causing inequitable access to healthcare were different, the impact to patients was the same. Inspired by my experience in Vietnam, I pursued an MPH degree and cultivated the skills needed to address the barriers to surgical care in Vietnam. It is the people of Vietnam, and their stories that continue to inspire my work today.
Dinh Minh Anh
As a woman growing up in Vietnam, I have always understood firsthand the impact that access to healthcare can have on patient outcomes. Building upon this experience, I have dedicated the entirety of my career to expanding access to surgical care and patient advocacy. As Director of Operations, Vietnam, it has become my mission to not only expand access to surgical care but empower our patients with informed consent. With Nuoy, I hope to bring our services closer to more people, which will make my own life more fulfilling.
