Who’s In The Fellowship? Meet One Of Our Heroes, Dr. Akeel!
August 7, 2012 by matt
For us, Remedy Fellowship represents much more than a program—it’s people. Individuals with interconnected goals and stories will live life together for an entire year.
This is completely different from our short term Remedy Missions because it will provide the kind of day-to-day training necessary to make these surgical centers fully functional and independent. The Fellowship is bringing together some incredible stories, and Dr. Akeel’s story is one of our favorites. For him, pediatric heart surgery is extremely personal. Watch the video to see why.
