Try Freedom Stories: How the UA Is Providing Medical Help Around the Globe

Posted By on Fri, Apr 24, 2015 at 10:37 AM

The nonprofit Try Freedom Stories has a new documentary about the UA's groundbreaking work in training doctors to help with medical crises around the world. As the organization explains:

The documentary gives us an in-depth look at global health and how the program at the UA is different. Their approach focuses on the community and local institutions that are already in place and avoids the common trap of foreign doctors "parachuting in" during a medical crisis. From 1982 through 2013, this course has graduated 669 participants, who have gone to over 70 nations to practice medicine in developing and remote areas.
