Since the onset of the pandemic worldwide Dr. Kalotee has taken a leadership role in helping to combat the virus with our leaders around the world especially with many of our doctors, nurses, first responders, support staff and political leaders to formulate plans to keep communities safe everywhere; local, national and international. He spearheaded many of the missions in multiple medical communities and neighborhoods by providing thousands face masks, shields, gloves, temperature and mask sensing kiosks which were delivered to hospitals, schools and nursing homes at no cost to any entities.


He reached out to very few friends who joined to assist him to raise funds for this mission. He was been known for his many charitable works around the world thru Friends for Good Health which he is International Chairman. With the outbreak of Covid- 19 he was energized to do something. Instead of hiding at home he went out to serve others regardless of if it was a hospital, nursing home, senior centers, schools, sports, or whatever neighborhood needed Bobby was there. Now that schools just opened, he was there with school bags and PPE for our students and teachers for the communities that need it the most. Bobby feels again and again the need to serve. Protecting others is the greatest reward a human can have and his organization motto is there is no better gift you can give to humanity than good health.

Bobby believes no matter where you live or work, today with technology you live and work everywhere with your extended family.
