I'm a family physician from Alaska, USA, who intermittently works with MSF. I have previously worked at a paediatric hospital in Yambio, South Sudan; with a mobile medical team providing primary health care in Myanmar; and at a large MSF hospital in Agok in South Sudan. For my fourth MSF mission, I'm working in the Nduta and Nyarugusu refugee camps in western Tanzania.
I’m supposed to write something here about me, which is not something I’m good at! But here it goes, some of the things that make getting up in the morning worthwhile include (in no particular order): wide open spaces, mountains and trees, healthy kids, practicing and teaching evidence-based medicine, chocolate, random animals wandering through medical facilities, and the general absurdity that often accompanies practicing medicine in resource-limited countries.
