FASPE 2016

FASPE

I am so thrilled to announce that I’ll be joining the FASPE family as a medical fellow this June. I will be traveling to Berlin, Krakow, and Auschwitz to engage in dialogue around one of humanity’s worst atrocities– the Holocaust– in order to better understand how to be a more ethically conscious physician, policy maker, and leader in healthcare and the government. Please read more about the program here.
