Gaza in October – Wonderful & Horrible
Come learn about the current situation in Israel/Gaza. We spent a week on a medical mission trip hosted by the Gaza Community Mental Health Program, visiting some beautiful examples of the human spirit rising against the odds. We were a child psychiatrist, cardiologist, orthopedic surgeon, pediatrician, general practitioner/yoga teacher, hospice nurse, and Lutheran pastor. While we were there Israelis shot protesters, Gazans sent rockets, and Israel bombed with drones and jets.
Amidst all that we made lifelong friends with colleagues experiencing and treating Perpetual Traumatic Stress Disorder. Slides and stories.
