Philadelphia doctor leads colleagues in Myanmar relief effort

Philadelphia Inquirer, May 15, 2008
A teacher at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania is leading a worldwide network of Myanmar-educated physicians in launching a relief effort to get aid to victims of a catastrophic cyclone in Myanmar. Jennifer Chu, a Philadelphia physician specializing in pain management, said her group's intention was to "get the relief directly to the people who need it." The organization is called the Alumni Myanmar Institutes of Medicine Association, and hopes to funnel donations directly to doctors on the ground or to the Yangon General Hospital, the one closest to the disaster.
