13 years ago I committed my path to a career devoted towards helping others. Not one that helps increase your bank account, or defends you in court, although those jobs have merit in their own right. But a career in medicine, to help people have the most fundamental asset there is, health. In many ways treating poor, underserved individuals has often been more meaningful for me because they have even less of an ability to advocate for their health. I’m reminded of this as I rotate back at Bellevue, NYC’s city hospital.
I’m excited to share that in two weeks I will be going to India with @ivumed to provide quality urologic care to residents living in Bhopal, India. I’ve always tried to give back to something bigger than myself, to the greater good that I may not be able to measure. In partnership with @wearfigs Threads for Threads program, IVU Med, and Boston Scientific, I will be operating on patients with urologic oncology focused conditions at the Sewa Sadan Hospital in Bhopal, India. I am asking for your support. Please consider donating $1, $5, $20 to help provide sutures, saline, dressings, and vital supplies to the patients I will be seeing. My trip is already funded. Every dime you contribute will go towards patient care and helping those in need. Head to the link in my bio ⤴️ if you are able to help. As always, I am deeply grateful for your support.
