In 1980 Dr. Seiden founded Doctors To The World, a 501(C)(3) Charitable Organization, to send volunteer personnel into underserved areas of the world. Over the past decades he's had the pleasure and the privilege of serving on many volunteer missions throughout the Third World, underprivileged areas in the US and abroad as well as disaster zones on our planet. Though these adventures have been on a volunteer basis, their rewards have been great.
