Furthest People First

(Inbunden)
Beskrivning:

Dr. Glenn W. Geelhoed is a medical doctor, humanitarian, and the founder of Mission to Heal, an organization through which he has been conducting medical mission trips around the globe for over forty years. His organization provides surgery and surgical training to some of the world's most destitute people in the most desolate places on the planet. The title Furthest Peoples First refers to individuals and groups who are the farthest from care and whom the author considers his primary focus.This book showcases the author's latest mission to Africa. The overarching theme of humanity with humility underscores the essence of what it means to reach the furthest people first. With stories and photographs, Dr. Geelhoed shares the excitement, determination, successes, patience, and partnerships that make his work so rewarding and important. This is an inspiring look at how he and his team persevere in the face of countless obstacles to complete the missions they've taken on.Dr. Geelhoed has a BS and AB from Calvin College, an MD from the University of Michigan, and did his surgical internship and residency through Harvard University at Peter Bent Brigham Hospital and Boston Children's Hospital Medical Center. He is a professor of surgery at George Washington University Medical Center in Washington DC, and is a widely published book and journal author. At 76 years old, he runs 10-20 marathons annually and hopes this book will help him raise money to support his work and attract volunteers to join him in that work.
