Dr. Benjamin LaBrot
Founder, Floating Doctors
Dr. Benjamin LaBrot is the founder of Floating Doctors, a seafaring medical group that provides free healthcare for people in remote coastal regions. While studying to become a doctor in Ireland, Ben made private medical missions to Thailand, Namibia, Botswana, South Africa, Tanzania and Zimbabwe. Enormous need everywhere he went, combined with the belief that the privilege of becoming a doctor comes with the responsibility for ALWAYS being on-call, have led Ben to combine his love and knowledge of the sea with his talent for medicine and service to create the Floating Doctors. Floating Doctors is an all-volunteer group of men and women from all walks of life united in their passion for the healing arts and a desire to serve.
