The physician sister of slain U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens is helping carry out the work he started in Benghazi, the Seattle Times reports
Anne Stevens, a specialist in autoimmune conditions in Seattle, at Seattle Children’s Hospital, is working to help Libya improve emergency care.
This week, three Libyan doctors visited Seattle and Boston spearheading a collaboration between Seattle Children’s Hospital, Massachusetts General Hospital, and the Benghazi Medical Center, according to the Times.
And six Libyans will soon train as paramedics in Boston.
“They could use our help to gain peace, stability, and security,” Thomas Burke, an emergency physician who was in Benghazi the night Stevens was killed Sept. 11, told the newspaper.
Benghazi doctors, with the guidance of Stevens, Burke, and others, will be able to develop healthcare management skills.
