Dr. O’Callahan will talk about the kinds of questions you should ask yourself before choosing when, where, and with which organization to volunteer or work abroad. Please bring your supper and join us for this conversation. All are welcome.
Before joining the faculty of the Middlesex Hospital’s Family Practice Program, Dr. O’Callahan spent three years working in a rural region of Guatemala. He continues to work in community-based medicine in Guatemala, training health workers and midwives. He is currently chair of the American Academy of Pediatrics, Section on International Child Health. Anyone considering the field of public health and/or work in international medicine should find this an inspiring and thought-provoking evening.
Prior to Dr. O’Callahan’s talk, we will be viewing a portion of the PBS documentary, Unnatural Causes, beginning at 6 PM.
Sponsored by the HealthCAN (Health Care Access Now) and MAPS (Minority Association of Pre-medical Students), and the CRC.
