2017 wrap-ups

We were in Da Nang from July 3-7, 2017 working at all 3 hospitals. There were 10 physicians total working at Da Nang General Hospital, Da Nang Hospital for Women and Children, and the Da Nang Oncology Hospital. At the General Hospital, we had physicians working in Cardiology, Plastics Surgery/ Dermatology, and Radiology. Gary Goble, a volunteer from RAD-AID went also to evaluate Da Nang General as a site for a PACS (radiology image storage) system. Our work week also overlapped slightly with those of our friends from the Children’s Genital Reconstruction Project. It was great to see Greig and Na Huong Craft, Dr. Roberto DeCastro and his fellow Italian urologists again. The surgeries and symposium went great at the Hospital for Women and Children. Finally, we launched the IGCS gyn oncology fellowship at the Da Nang Oncology Hospital with Dr. Quynh (Tran Thi Nhu Quynh) as the first fellow!

The children’s craft project was a success with a great team consisting of Mimi Dinh and the Frey family- Mom Danielle and Hadley and Kieran. Hadley and Kieran had sold lemonade in Jacksonville to raise funds to buy the crafts supplies!

So many good memories and new friends on this trip. The karaoke wasn’t bad either!
