And the word gets out…

Much preparation has gone into the planning stages of this project and I am very excited to see how it will translate on the field. Prior to our departure, we have a number of media outlets including television, YouTube, radio, and newspaper articles in line to help get the word out regarding this project. My thought process is that if so much work, sweat, guts and tears went into this, why not share those efforts to inspire others to pursue their own passions and interests? Right?! In fact, the first YouTube video about the project was made last week and released. I thought it fit perfectly in the “About” section of the blog and thus it is permanently there. Check it out in this post too.

I took the opportunity to explain both the project itself but also the health-sphere we will be working in. I have such a fascination with how healthcare is affected secondary to political conflict and turmoil. The World Health Organization (WHO) deemed healthcare to be the most vulnerable factor in times of conflict. WHO’s role in the occupied Palestinian territories can be found on their site. This experience will definitely translate into my future medical practice as well as my influence on health policy both locally and abroad. More on that later…

The next media outlet will be on the show Peace by Piece March 10th, 7PM on Channel 18 – PATV.
