I'm asking for your support to fund a surgical mission to Chittagong, Bangladesh. I will be traveling in March of 2018 with the group International Surgical Health Initiatives (ISHI). Our team will consist of surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurses, residents, and students. Our objectives are: 1- To perform a needs assessment of surgical illness in southern Bangladesh. 2- To triage and care for patients presenting to the Nurture Hospital with surgical illnesses during the duration of the mission. 3- To establish a lasting partnership with local health authorities to better serve the people in that region.
