Humanitarian Mission Work in Cardiac Surgery: An Interview With Emily Farkas
“I’ve found a way to craft my career so that I can spend as much time as possible doing humanitarian mission work. It’s been an important focus for me. I feel like it is the way my professional and personal fulfillment can overlap,” Emily Farkas says in an interview with Joel Dunning, which was filmed at the 2016 STS Annual Meeting in Phoenix, Arizona. Dr. Farkas discusses her humanitarian work, including a recent volunteer trip to treat patients in Nepal.
Dr. Farkas and Mr. Dunning also introduce the new CTSNet Surgical Volunteerism Portal, a resource for cardiothoracic surgeons and allied health professionals interested in humanitarian work. The portal will contain educational videos, articles, and personal essays on surgical volunteerism, as well as upcoming surgical volunteer opportunities.
