I serve as a physician advisor to A Broader View and have helped in recruiting volunteer physicians, nurses, medical and nursing students as volunteers. I am very aware of the fantastic work this company has accomplished and quite aware of what a great opportunity volunteering has been for our volunteers. My cardiac history has precluded me from serving in an overseas capacity as a volunteer. I have spoken with medical school and nursing school faculty both before they have gone and after they have returned from their oversea assignments. The same for some of the student volunteers and am very aware of the good they are doing in the countries they visited and of the tremendous benefit they as individuals have received. Our students have returned excited and enthusiastic with their broadened knowledge of medicine as it is practiced in areas of the world they have possibly heard of, but have never been exposed to except didactically.
