Trip to Tibet 2014
Dr. Charles Kutler led a group of of physicians on a return medical mission to Tibet in August of 2014 along with MAHV Drs. Moss and Karnasiewicz. We had the opportunity to treat approximately 2000 people with a crew of 7 physicians (Dr. Paul Llobet, Dr. Holly Llobet, Dr. Amy Sousan, and PA Rich Burzine), 1 dentist, 2 acupuncturists, and two students. This year we were able to create clinics at two sites including the monasteries at Raktrul and Chodrak. An alliance was formed with the local Tibetan Hospital in Nanching where we did teaching with the Tibetan doctors during patient care. This was very successful and the physicians at the hospital would now like to be included in our regular medical mission visits. A new aspect of trip also included evening home visits to homebound patients and one morning of nursing home rounds. The whole group did a superb job under very difficult circumstances. MAHV is happy to help sponsor these endeavors to help others in resource poor areas and bring medical services to those in great need. We are grateful for everyone’s support, efforts, and generosity of spirit.
