CTDL 171: Doc gives it up to give back


Artress found work with another clinic in Arusha, where he ended up in what amounted to a crash course in tropical diseases.
On his first day, a patient with a neck abscess the size of a baseball came in. The resident doctor handed Artress a scalpel.
“I am an anesthesiologist. I don’t do this,” Artress protested.
“You do now.”
