San Diego Comes Out For MSF Event

More than 300 attendees packed the theater inside the San Diego Natural History Museum on Wednesday night to hear a panel discussion with four MSF field workers–Lorena Bilbao, Mary Jo Frawley, Alan Hickey, and San Diego-based surgeon Sandra Freiwald. The event was moderated by Alison St. John, KPBS reporter and local host of Morning Edition and All Things Considered.

During the discussion, MSF logistician Alan Hickey described the nerve-wracking lead-up to his first MSF mission in Port Harcourt, Nigeria.
