A Bold Vision for Africa!

By medsenddev | June 29, 2017 | Comments Off on A Bold Vision for Africa!

Three Award-winning Eye Doctors Make Lasting Impact Many moms cry when they first see their children at birth. But the tears of Dr. John Cropsey’s patient were especially sweet when she gazed on her seven-month-old son for the first time, thanks to surgery that restored her sight. “She was beaming from ear to ear and…

An Open Letter to the Boy Who Wiggled His Eyebrows

By medsenddev | June 26, 2017 |

By Melody Miller, RN Nighttime has always been my favorite. My favorite time to eat, work, read, and play. The air is fresh and my mind miraculously clears with the setting sun. On that fateful day, I stayed at work a little late to tick the final things off my list. I don’t know about…

“Fat” Faith

By medsenddev | May 9, 2017 |

By Robin Crowell, MPAS, PA-C

Poverty… a name that immediately brings Africa to your mind. But why? What exactly does this word “poverty” mean?

“A deficiency of necessary or desirable ingredients, qualities, etc.”

Why do we always assume that refers to money? Yes, a component of a poverty-stricken land is lack of monetary means. By these standards, anyone would consider Zambia poor. From the outside looking in, you can see the statistics. Over 64% of the population lives below the “poverty line.” (Living on less than $1.90 per day, or just under 20 kwacha). For the new foreigner coming to Zambia, you can see “poverty” everywhere you walk, particularly in the rural areas. Considering the worldly view, Zambia is poor…

By medsenddev | April 14, 2017 |

By Lauren Webber, RN The Faces of Suffering.  This would be the title of the Times magazine news spread if they had chosen to highlight the 100-day national physician strike in Kenya.

Finding the Hope of Passover in a Refugee Crisis

By medsenddev | April 12, 2017 |

By Allie Riddle, BSN, RN

I come home from work trying to forget what I have seen. The last, racking chest rise and fall of a malnourished child, who appears more like a skeleton than body. The tear-filled, red-rimmed eyes of a young boy watching the small corpse of a friend or sister being carried out of the mortuary. The tension and fear in a mother’s eyes as she carries her limp toddler into a poorly resourced health clinic. I want to forget what I have heard. The last breaths. The cries of pain. The sound of tears.
