Introduction Twenty-six years ago, I made a life changing decision. At the time, in 1985, I was at Harvard Medical School and, quite bored with the didactic learning. I decided to take a semester-long leave of absence and go on a mission trip to Africa. Through a series of fortuitous events, I found myself at the Nigerian Christian Hospital, in Aba, Nigeria. From the moment I arrived, I knew that this was the work I was meant to do. In 2004, I formed the Earthwide Surgical Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, dedicated to delivering surgical care to the poor of the world by means of manpower, equipment and education. Donations can be made to Earthwide Surgical Foundation, 1933 Eastwood Drive, Henderson, TX 75652 Please contact me at
