Healing: Stories from a Global Health Physician (Paperback)
What is it like to practice medicine in forgotten places? Healing: Stories from a Global Health Physician recounts one doctor's journey through medicine around the world. Through a series of essays, experiences ranging from rural African villages to overcrowded refugee camps are brought to life. These patients, many whose voices would never be heard otherwise, allow their stories to highlight the atrocities many face every day. What is it like to give birth in No Man's Land? How would you feel if you were automatically made 'Do Not Resuscitate'? Will the young boy, his body riddled with shrapnel, find safety? Each excerpt highlights challenges of providing medical care in underserved areas and the immense struggles to achieve health equity. Although there can be vast differences between us, this documented voyage shows our connection in strength and how we all still strive for healing.
