Our story began almost 60 years ago in the farming community of Turlock, California. Dr. Marion Collins had a vision of protecting and saving lives worldwide. He was heard saying on more than one occasion, “We are not here to make money. We are here to save lives.”
Dr. Collins and his family demonstrated that commitment by investing their own money in the first few years MedicAlert was established, while also contributing countless hours of volunteer time. The “mail room” for MedicAlert in the early years was their family room.
