"Monumental challenges" by Katherine Kosman
Dartmouth medical student Katherine Kosman spent the summer of 2008 with an organization called the Himalayan Health Exchange, bringing health care to remote mountain villages scattered through the Himalayas in India. She wrote about the experience, and the ruminations it inspired, in a feature titled "Monumental challenges" in the Fall 2009 issue of Dartmouth Medicine magazine.
