“I was most impressed by the skill exhibited by our surgeon hosts including the two new ones who joined us this trip. I think they valued hands on experience most but also benefited greatly from our talks. I learned how to make do with less from my host and also what true commitment to patients is.”
Joe Babiarz, MD, Haiti June 2012
