About Repairing the World - Dr Rick Hodes

Join us for an inspiring evening featuring JDC's (The Joint's) Medical Director Dr Rick Hodes who will share remarkable stories from his 30 years of life-saving medical work all over the world, from Ethopia to Albania, Somalia to Tanzania.

Rick is a world-renowned physician who specialises in cancer, heart disease and spinal conditions and has been treating victims of famine, war and disease in Ethiopia for over 30 years.

In Ethiopia, there are three physicians per 100,000 people. People seeking treatment for cancer, spine and heart disease wait years to receive medical care. Too many people die in the interim.

Over the past 30 years, JDC has worked extensively to treat Ethiopian children in desperate need of medical care.

YJP Melbourne and JDC invite you to hear from Rick, the Medical Director of this important humanitarian operation. Rick will be interviewed by Hannah Wollan.
