Dr. Joanne Liu has a fascinating life story. She is currently a pediatric emergency medicine physician, Associate Professor of Medicine at the University of Montreal, and Professor of Clinical Medicine at McGill University. She is also the former International President of Medicins Sans Frontieres, or Doctors Without Borders. In this episode of Digging Deep, Dr. Liu shares her deeply informed perspective on the many lessons of the pandemic, including how we failed to unite globally in response to COVID-19 and how we might repeat that mistake in the future. She also shares remarkable stories about her childhood as the daughter of immigrants, her experiences providing care in some of the most devastated areas of the world, why you should be a giver instead of a taker, and how she set out with the goal of changing the world, but it was actually the world that changed her.
