Lorna Adams is a Canadian Family Physician, who has recently returned from working for MSF in the world’s newest country, South Sudan. Now back at home in Canada, her blog is being published retrospectively.
She has previous experience working in Malawi, Ghana, Sierra Leone and Zimbabwe. This was her first mission with MSF.
Lorna completed her medical degree at McMaster University and residency at the University of Toronto. She has worked for 20 years as a Canadian Family Doc, with intermittent travels to volunteer throughout Africa. Prior to becoming a physician, she drove a Land Rover from London to Nairobi, and learned patience, how to double clutch and use 4 wheel drive to keep a Land Rover upright.
She has three grown children who lovingly support their mom’s many disappearances and missed family time.
