THE STORY:

Hello my friends and family!

Every few years I am struck by a cause so compelling that I change my current life course. When I read about P.U.R.E.-a non-profit organization started by several motivated young ER doctors from Boston- I was delighted and inspired. This group is doing exactly what I believe in: teaching local physicians in a developing nation with little or no access to advanced imaging (xray, CT or MRI) how to save lives using bedside, portable ultrasound.

I believe so strongly that bedside ultrasound IS the way medicine, particularly in developing nations, is moving that I just recently left my great lifestyle job in Flagstaff and went back to school for this skill alone. Alas, a poor student again!

I am emailing to ask for your financial help as I head to Rwanda in January. I will be traveling to Kigali, Rwanda to teach local docs for several weeks on end. Both the organization and myself need financial support to make this a possibility, as they are not yet able to assist volunteering physicians with basic travel needs.
