Joni Doherty, MD, PhD, joined her colleagues on a medical mission in October as part of Global ENT Outreach. The trip this time took them to El Salvador, where in the course of ten days they  performed over 40 ear procedures on some of the country’s most needy citizens, both young and old. They also provided education on the latest surgical techniques and procedures for local physicians in the city of San Salvador in order to create a sustainable program for the future. The team consisted of Richard Wagner, MD, an otolaryngologist who runs Global ENT Outreach (GEO), and Derald Brackman, also an ENT from the U.S. At the end of their mission, the team received certificates of gratitude from the local university hospital during a ceremony held as part of a press conference on the mission.
