The American health care system isn’t perfect. But compared to Rwanda, to Cameroon, to Armenia and Indonesia, the difference is night and day, life and death. People in those countries are crying out for the expertise that Inland Northwest medical professionals can provide. Fortunately, some health care providers are ready to help. And they are looking to do more than just slap a Band-Aid on the problem. They’re looking for cures — a way to help transform at least a small part of the way medicine is practiced in countries with a multitude of challenges. Read on and find out how five medical professionals — just a few of the many locals who have traveled far from home to volunteer — have taken their mission to cure the sick and to help the ailing beyond these borders.
