Joseph Derek Forrester
Fellow in Surgery - General Surgery
Bio My work combines my passion for surgery with my interest in infectious disease, public health, and humanitarian disaster response. Surgery and healthcare can be powerful diplomatic tools. Trauma is ubiquitous to the human experience. Regardless of nationality or socioeconomic status a critically injured trauma patient is a person left without options, often dependent upon a surgeon for life-saving procedures and care. The experience of being cared for in a time of great vulnerability by another person of a different nationality, or utilizing a trauma system created in conjunction with another nation, can create firm cross-cultural bonds. This bond can transcend racial, cultural, and economic boundaries and lead to feelings of goodwill that might not otherwise exist. Follow me on Twitter @explorersurgeon
