Tomsk Surgical-Educational Mission 6

Aug 23, 2011 | Photo Galleries, Tomsk

Our sixth annual mission to the Tomsk Cardiology Institute was a clear testimonial to our Russian colleagues’ dramatic progress toward self-sustainability – and to their undiminished eagerness for advanced education and training. Our 2011 Tomsk team included one newcomer, perfusionist Mindy Blackwell, invited by lead pediatric cardiac intensivist Dr. Janet Simsic. All of the other medical volunteers on this year’s team were veterans of multiple Heart to Heart surgical-educational missions.
