Nick Cienski, a former designer for Under Armour and Arc'teryx, embarked on a mission to revolutionize healthcare attire with KyurMD (pronounced ‘Cure’). His goal was to create high-performance, durable, and stylish scrubs that would enhance the comfort and confidence of medical professionals. 

Through innovative fabrics and meticulous design, KyurMD offers scrubs that are not only functional but also long-lasting, repelling bodily fluids and meeting FDA level two certification standards. 

Nick's dedication to improving workwear extends to a commitment to combating human trafficking through Mission 14, a nonprofit he co-founded with his wife, aiming to make a positive impact in Nicaragua.
