Talk of the Towns 1/9/09

Producer/Host: Ron Beard

Topic: A year of service in the Congo with Doctors Without Borders

Guest: Linda Robinson, Nurse-midwife, Women’s Health Center, Mount Desert Island Hospital, Bar Harbor, ME
What made you decide to pursue a year in service… why Africa and why Doctors without Borders?  Background on Doctors without Borders:  Where are they based, what is their mission, how do they tend to work? As you settled in to the work, what challenges did you have to overcome?  What would you like to leave with listeners about your experience and, using your experience in Shamwana, about the puzzle about our responsibilities to Africa?
