Doctors to provide online consultations in war areas
Chicago Tribune, May 22, 2008
A volunteer effort to link health professionals in war-torn areas of the world with specialized physicians who can provide consultations via the Internet is set to be unveiled. The alliance is led by the Chicago-based Center for International Rehabilitation, and hopes to sign up 300 volunteer doctors who will do 1,000 consultations in the first year. The group initially plans to target areas beset by violence and suffering from poverty in Middle Eastern countries.
