Global Health: Does it Matter?

Presenter / Panelists

Kwan Kew Lai, MD, DMD  Harvard Medical Faculty Physician at Beth Israel Deaconess-Needham  Hospital, international disaster relief volunteer doctor, and author

Moderator

ChorSwang Ngin, PhD professor of socio-cultural anthropology at California State University, Los Angeles

Healthcare to the masses knows no border. Kwan Kew Lai fulfilled her childhood dreams of worldwide medical volunteering when she left medical academia as a professor of medicine in 2006 to be a medical humanitarian volunteer. She began her volunteer work right after the Asian Tsunami. Since then she has volunteered all over the world for HIV/AIDS, and worked with refugees and internally displaced people during wars and conflicts, after natural disasters, including the greatest Ebola outbreak in West Africa. She chronicles her experiences in her first two books: Lest We Forget: A Doctor’s Experience with Life and Death During the Ebola Outbreak, and Into Africa, Out of Academia: A Doctor’s Memoir. Kwan Kew will share what motivated her to change her career path, the challenges she faces, and her myriad of volunteering exploits in her almost two decades of humanitarian work. Her most recent book is a memoir, The Girl Who Taught Herself to Fly, describing how she came from an impoverished family in Penang, Malaysia to attend Wellesley College on a full scholarship.
