Treating Heart Disease in Nepal

The Thoracic Surgery Foundation offered its first International Medical Volunteer Scholarship to cardiothoracic surgery resident Kellianne Kleeman, MD, from the University of Michigan, so that she could participate in a charitable medical mission to an underserved region of the world. Dr. Kleeman recently traveled to Nepal, with Fred Grover, MD, and his team on their annual trip to help people in South Asia.

This video provides an overview of the scholarship experience and the people who were helped in the process.
