ICFRC - MSF/Doctors Without Borders: Surgical Missions and Tales from the Field

Listen to an audio podcast of this program.

"Mine has been a life of frequent moves. I grew up as an 'army brat', traveling across the US and Europe - graduating from high school in Frankfurt, Germany in 1977. Medical School (Uniformed Services University, 1986) and residency took place while spending 16 years in the Army. I considered myself a pretty savvy man of the world until the Army sent me to Haiti for 7 months. This deployment led to a profound awareness of lives lived outside our 'first world' bubble - eventually spurring me to join in the missions and activities of Doctors Without Borders."
