How does one volunteer with Doctors Without Borders--or MSF (Medecins Sans Frontiers), as it is known internationally--and what can one expect? Dr. Roby C. Thompson Jr., Professor Emeritus of Orthopedic Surgery at the University of Minnesota, will share his personal experience from Haiti, post-earthquake. He’ll talk about the route to an assignment, the experience, the volunteers and the plight of the residents.
