Dr. Anna Grodzinsky watched anxiously from Kansas City when the Russian invasion of Ukraine began. Her aunt and 96-year-old grandmother were hunkered down in their central Lviv home.

Many sleepless nights followed as Grodzinsky, a cardiologist at Saint Luke’s Mid America Heart Institute, watched how war affected access to fresh food, affordable medications and preventative healthcare services in the country where she was born. It’s why she’s volunteering Saturday with Project C.U.R.E., a non-profit partnered with Saint Luke’s Health System, to send more advanced medical supplies to the people of Ukraine.
