She is one of the very few Paediatric Surgeons in the US who head the entire division of Surgery. She is a pioneer in Global Surgery and Global Paediatric Surgery.

She was the first Visiting Professor sponsored by the Eyabantwana- For The Children Trust. She visited our department on 15 and 16 September 2015.

It was an honour to meet her- such a simple, down to earth, approachable person; she appreciated everything we were doing and did. These are news articles in the local newspapers about her visit and her lecture- “Past, Present & Future of Foetal Surgery”.
