Dr. Adam L. Kushner, MD, MPH, FACS, a board certified general surgeon who practices exclusively in developing countries and a founder of Surgeons OverSeas (SOS), will present an overview of surgery in the developing world - a subject Dr. Paul Farmer has called "the neglected stepchild of global health."

Based on Dr. Kushner's experience of working in over 20 developing countries, he will provide an overview of the problems and complexities of providing quality surgical care for the billions of people who live on less than $2 a day, highlight recent research, and discuss future plans to address the massive unmet global burden of surgical disease.
