We would first like to give a special thanks to Dr. John Kahler and Dr. Adeeb Alshahrour for taking the time and effort to stop by Loyola and give us all incredible insight on the refugee crisis. We truly appreciate your support and commend the work you do. Your passion for the mission at hand is something that we all hope to have!

Also, we would like to give a special thanks Loyola University Chicago AMSA for their support and efforts in making this a successful event. Their passion for these matters also does not go unnoticed.

SAMS Global Response: Human Connection

To all aspiring to be in the healthcare field, we must remember foundationally "Healthcare is about the human connection."
SAMS Global Response is providing commendable humanitarian work and care to a vulnerable community we don't hear much about (if at all) from mainstream media outlets - Displaced Refugees.
Their work in the various camps (Eko & al Hara just being a couple of the government run ones) in Greece is beautiful and moving, and makes you believe that we shouldn't give up on humanity just yet.

Beautifully produced by E-board member Mahdi Sahloul
