3D4MD was conceived by Dr. Julielynn Wong in September 2011. 3D4MD combines a wealth of practical clinical knowledge, advanced qualifications, and an open innovation process to address some of the most difficult healthcare problems faced in remote and challenging places to work. 3D4MD is committed to bringing quality healthcare services to people regardless of their race, national origin, religion or political affiliation. Our services balance gender and environmental concerns to the greatest extent possible. Staff, volunteers, and supporters are being added as we become operationally capable.Julielynn is a Harvard-educated public health physician, innovator, and educator. She is a pioneer in 3D printing medical devices in austere environments. She was the first to 3D print medical supplies
at the Mars Desert Research Station. She designed a solar-powered mobile 3D printer
that can be transported in a carry-on suitcase to produce medical supplies in remote, off-grid communities. She launched the first 3D printing learning activity
for students and teachers at Canada’s only Challenger Learning Centre. Dr. Wong proposed the "3D AstroMed Devices" Challenge
, which was launched for the 2015 NASA International Space Apps Challenge. Julielynn regularly lectures on 3D printing and innovation in healthcare. She is a frequent contributor to various media outlets including ABC News, Forbes, and the Huffington Post.
