About Us


Shoulder to Shoulder Global is an organization created within the University of Kentucky which incorporates other academic and community partners and seeks to improve the health and well-being of impoverished and underserved communities globally.

The initial focus of STSG has been in Santo Domingo, Ecuador, where we have a year-round health clinic. While providing primary care for this community, STSG also is working with the community to improve education, public health, access to safe water, and to improve economic opportunities. STSG seeks to provide and promote educational, service and research opportunities for all partners involved.
