Introduction to Global Surgery with Gregory Peck, DO, FACS
October 15, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The Rutgers chapters of Global Surgery Student Alliance (GSSA) present an introduction to the expanding impact of global surgery on global health.
Gregory Peck, DO, FASC, assistant professor in the acute care surgery division at Robert Wood Johnson Medical School and a faculty leader for Rutgers Global Surgery, will lead a discussion on the collaborative value and benefit that surgery and anesthesia contribute in addressing existing healthcare disparities impacting low- and middle-income countries worldwide.
Despite remarkable advances in global health advocacy in the last decade, the global community faces a severe shortage of surgeons, anesthesiologists, obstetricians, and surgical health care providers. In response, Rutgers Global Surgery is committed to researching health systems solutions and promoting academic advocacy, in collaboration with other U.S. and global academic institutions. Dr. Peck will describe ongoing Rutgers Global Surgery projects and opportunities for students and health care advocates to participate.
