Medical Seminar praises Projects Abroad volunteers
On Thursday the 18th of January in the town of Sivakasi in Tamil Nadu, Projects Abroad Director Peter Slowe met with a committee of ten of the regions most senior doctors to discuss the subject of volunteering. Each of these doctors run clinics or hospitals which continue to benefit from taking on Projects Abroad volunteers - from pre-university students to elective students to skilled doctors, nurses, physiotherapists and dentists -and the discussion revolved around the best way to match individuals to each location.
The seminar was really useful in bringing Projects Abroad and its partners in the medical profession closer together. They agreed to repeat the seminar at least once a year from now on.
