Editors Note:

I have had the pleasure of getting to know Brian C. Forsberg MPH CCP, the team of ICHF, and interviewing Dr. Bill Novick over that past couple of years. 

The “BabyHeart” blog is in my opinion, a very well written and insightful effort that brings us to the front lines of perfusion at it’s rawest and best.

I would like to share with you a link to an amazing story, that I hope you will take the time to read and participate in as well 🙂

Volunteers from all parts of the world mingle with each other in the lobby, as their anxiousness begins to fade from the calming effect the professionalism and leadership of veteran volunteers.

Most ICHF trips adjourn in two weeks, but this trip is unique in that it will be a three-week-long mission in Tegucigalpa.
