This is the video from our global medical mission trip October 2012. We were proud to serve over 600 people with combined medical and dental care. I have written several posts on the topic. It was an amazing experience and every time I need a reminder of why I love my job, I just look at these pictures.
I encourage each and every Physician Assistant I meet to take a trip like this. And then take 10 more. It will change your life in ways I cannot begin to describe. It will make you a better, more balanced person!
Since returning I have a renewed passion for my work, and I am proud of my kids as they continue to ask the questions about these children and their families. My 5-year-old daughter now says when she grows up she "Wants to be a person who helps poor people and the Haiti kids." Honestly, this is the best thing a dad can hear.
I hope that 2013 brings continued joy. My thanks to the amazing Brad Ingram, my dear friend and a wonderful PA who organized this whole adventure.
