More than 300 people gathered at Town Hall Los Angeles on Tuesday night to see Dr. James Orbinski, former president of MSF International. Dr. Orbinski, who is the subject of the new documentary film Triage, and author of the just-released book, "An Imperfect Offering," spoke about his experiences working with MSF in contexts such as the Rwandan genocide and the Afghan civil war.
Listen to clips from the event:
