Global Links Lunch + Learn: Dr. Keith Apelgren and Medical Service Trips
July 11, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Join Global Links for their July Lunch + Learn with their volunteer, Dr. Keith Apelgren
Dr Keith Apelgren, Global Links’ volunteer, will share stories and discusses his experiences on Medical Service Trips.
Access to adequate medical/surgical care is far from available to everyone. 70% of operations done in the world are performed on 26% of the population. In remote areas women frequently die of obstructed labor and people die of strangulated hernias. Both are preventable. Dr. Apelgren has taken part in 1-2 week-long medical missions from 1981 until 2017. He will share his insights on the care given and the rewards of such work.
Global Links Lunch + Learn series is a free monthly event featuring speakers on topics such as health, sustainability and humanitarian issues. Lunch + Learn offers guests an informative lunch hour of education and engaging discussion. Presentations start at 12pm and last about 1 hour. Light refreshments provided.
The Global Links facility is handicap accessible. Bring your lunch and join the conversation!
