Hello! Over the course of the next two weeks, an Interplast surgical team will be working in My Tho, Vietnam, providing life-changing surgeries for children with burns, cleft lip/palates, ptosis and other injuries and congenital deformities.
My name is Tin Ha-Ngoc, and I am one of the coordinator/translators for the Interplast team. This is my first Interplast trip, and I am very excited to be here. I hope to upload pictures and text to tell some of the stories of the children and the team, but internet access here can be a little spotty.
Interplast communications and technology coordinator Seth Mazow will call me from the Interplast office in California via Skype/Gizmo each night (morning for him), record our conversation about my day and turn it into a podcast. Here is my first interview with him about today's clinic day. This is the first Interplast trip to incorporate podcasting, and we are hoping it goes well. If you have any questions you would like to ask me or the other team members about our work here, post a comment here and I will try to answer each day.
