Recent global health projects
I recently was engaging in direct clinical care overseas in a number of different refugee camps: at the Syrian-Jordanian border, in Bangladesh, and in Greece. In each of these locations, I provided patient care in pediatric clinics, worked with local NGOs, and engaged in education of local doctors and nurses. I also provided ultrasound education in Jordan.
