Long-term Culture of Wellness

The following specialties comprise the majority of our Super Team’s skill sets and expertise used to alleviate, in some cases, many years of continual pain and discomfort:

  • Cardiology

  • Dermatology
  • Ears, Nose, Throat
  • Gynecology
  • Ophthalmology
  • Orthopedic
  • Urology

Heart disease, stroke and diabetes are the top three killers in Micronesia. This rampant problem is due, in large part, to the type of diet consumed by the population—both young and old.


Some years ago, we established a Wellness Center on the Atoll of Majuro which has become a beacon of hope among the people of the islands. Diabetes reversal is no longer something discussed in scientific journals alone—it is a reality to those who once suffered but have experienced major life-style and health changes thanks to the expertise of the Canvasback Wellness Team.

Canvasback strives to fulfill its mission with excellence, accountability, and transparency. As a nonprofit, Canvasback relies on the generous donations of individuals and communities, and recognizes financial responsibility as one of its top priorities.
