Hearts Around the World
Last Friday, a team of seven American doctors travel to Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam to perform heart procedures on patients and train Vietnamese heart doctors in the latest Medical and surgical techniques. The docs will be part of a volunteer medical mission put together by Hearts Around the World, a non-profit based in Danbury, CT.
Three of the seven doctors have strong connections to the CardioVascular Institute at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center: Duane Pinto is a CVI interventional cardiologist. David O'Halloran, a non-interventional cardiologist, and Tom Tu, who completed his interventional cardiology fellowship at BIDMC in 2003, will also be part of the team. Tom is currently an interventional cardiologist in Louisville, KY. The trip should be of special interest to him because he is of Vietnamese descent.
