Medical Mission to Underserved Kiritimati

January 30, 2017

Elizabeth Beale, MD, endocrinologist at the University of Southern California, is looking for a podiatric surgeon to accompany her on a week-long visit to the remote, medically underserved Pacific island of Kiritimati, or “Christmas Island,” south of Honolulu, to assist with diabetes care.

The trip will commence on March 13 and will serve to establish a basic diabetes foot care program at the invitation of the Kiribati Ministry of Health and the medical aid organization PIMA. All expenses for the week are covered, other than the flight to Honolulu and back.
