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.
