2015 Symposium- MEDICAL RELIEF AND DEVELOPMENT IN TODAY’S WORLD

Friday, February 27, 2015- 6:00 pm

Dr. Richard Currie

Richard is a family and emergency physician from Salmon Arm, BC. He has
spent over three years working overseas in medical relief and international
development projects, primarily with Medecins Sans Frontieres / Doctors
Without Borders (MSF). This talk will examine some of the challenges and
pitfalls of providing medical relief in remote and/or difficult parts of the
developing world, using examples from Ethiopia, Ghana, Somalia, Tchad, and
the Central African Republic. The primary objective of this talk is to
solve all of the world’s problems, while we simultaneously enjoy the open
bar and gorge at the all-you-can eat buffet
