2016 Award Winner: Mark W. Newton, M.D.
The following is an excerpt from one of Dr. Newton’s letters of support:
"Dr. Newton and his family moved to East Africa in 1997, and he has lived within walking distance of Kijabe Hospital in Kenya full-time for over 18 years…In Kenya, through a partnership with the Kenya Ministry of Health, Dr. Newton has organized a program of anesthesia education and training for local anesthesia providers. This program has graduated providers, up to 20 students per class, who are qualified in basic general and regional anesthesia techniques, and who have remained in the rural areas of Kenya, providing safe anesthesia care. I cannot emphasize enough the importance of Dr. Newton's 'teach a man to fish' approach to anesthesia in Kenya."
