The last day of medical operations at Hung My medical site in Vietnam ended with smiles for a job well done.
HOPE volunteers Dr. Douglas Dulli from Madison, Wisconsin, and Dr. Kevin Kapadia, a Neurology Resident at University of Wisconsin, worked the medical site with other medical professionals on the Pacific Partnership 2012 team.
“It was very nice to work with a different variety of medicine,” says Dr. Dulli. “Being a specialist, it was great to gain some new knowledge on different types of prescriptions."
With great admiration for the people of Vietnam, Dr. Dulli seemed very pleased with his time in the country.
"The most important thing was working with the Vietnamese people, they may not have the greatest of riches, but they have no shortage of friendliness and gratitude," said Dr. Dulli. "They were very sweet people, and it was a nice working environment.”
Dr. Kapadia also provided top care to the patients that he treated.
"Today was one of the best days I have had on a medical site” he said. “I treated a sizable amount of patients, some with complex medical problems. Being able to educate them about their diseases and to offer a form of relief was very fulfilling."
Dr. Kapadia mentioned that working alongside the translators also increased his knowledge of the local medication and the culture of Vietnam.
While onsite medical operations are completing in Vietnam, the memories gained will live forever with our Project HOPE volunteers.
