California Doc Visits Third World Countries for Missionary Work
Dr. Debbie Weinstein, MD at Santa Maria Juvenile Hall (CA), has made over 30 trips to Third World countries since completing her residency in 1999.
An Emergency Medicine physician, Dr. Weinstein has travelled to Mexico, Honduras, Nicaragua, Haiti and Africa arranging volunteers, transport, transporting medical supplies and setting up make-shift clinics. “The opportunity to serve those most in need is tremendously rewarding. Although physically and emotionally challenging, you receive far more than you give,” Dr. Weinstein said of her travels.
The main organizations Dr. Weinstein works with are Aeromedicos, MEDICO, Vision International Missions and UMCOR. She listed one of her favorite quotes as: “You can’t have a perfect day without doing something for someone who’ll never be able to repay you.” - John Wooden.
