Dr. Marc Levin Talks About Working with MSF in the Field
A Refugee Camp in the Heart of the City in Los Angeles

Dr. Marc Levin talks about treating malnutrition at A Refugee Camp in the Heart of the City in Los Angeles.

Dr. Marc Levin, a family practitioner in New York, NY and a member of the faculty at Albert Einstein College of Medecine, has worked with Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) since December 2007.  He worked in Chad in an internally displaced persons (IDP) camp, and in Niger at a malnutrition project, which he returned from in June of this year.

Earlier this week, after giving tours at the Refugee Camp exhibit, Marc spoke at a recruitment event for people interested in working in the field with MSF. He described the projects that he worked at and gave some insight into what it's like to work with MSF.

The following are excerpts from his presentation:
