Let us Say THANKS by GIVING to Your Favorite Cause!
Travel Nurses give their all every day for patients nationwide, and, as this holiday season approaches, Medical Solutions would like to honor and thank nurses everywhere for all their hard work by supporting some of their favorite charitable efforts.
Throughout 2015 we've worked with charities that support kids with serious illnesses, nurses in need, and animals, and that provide clean water to improve health conditions worldwide, among many, many others. Whether through money donated or time volunteered, it's important to the Medical Solutions family to give back to our community, country, and world whenever we can.
Now, we want you to let us say THANKS by GIVING to some of your favorite causes!
Please tell us: What nonprofit and/or charitable organization matters most to you — and why?

Traveling Pet of the Month
Toby the Beagle is a traveling pet with a nose for the best treats and a face you just can't say no to. He is a bit of a dog treat connoisseur, but if you ask his mom, Lisa D., what his favorite treat of all time is, she won't hesitate to tell you it's "Puperoni!"
