Medical Missions in Gaza: On the Ground Experiences

Margot Patterson concludes last week’s conversation with Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson about the U.S.-Israeli relationship. Wilkerson  was chief of staff to U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell and now teaches government and public policy at the College of Willliam and Mary. She then speaks to Dr. Majdi Hamarshi, a Kansas City physician and founder of the Palestinian-American Medical Association (PAMA). Since 2013, PAMA has been sending medical missions to Gaza and the Occupied West Bank to help meet the medical needs of Palestinians living there. Now PAMA is sending medical missions to Gaza to help local doctors and nurses in Gaza treat the many wounded by the war. Dr. Hamarshi reports on the difficulties PAMA has faced getting teams into Gaza and what its doctors and nurses are seeing and experiencing there.
